Getting those splines to line-up when replacing the back wheel is tricky without the axle spindle, maybe not having the spindle as with normal swinging arms is one reason it failed?

Do you mean when manufactured? Because they aren't designed to come apart. The rear wheel bolts to the hub just like an automobile.

I think I may have answered my own question.  If you go to www.tiger-explorer.com and search final drive failure you can see a vidio of what appears to be an identical issue with an Explorer and the riders interrupted trip to Italy.

Can you post the video or a direct link to it here?

I can't even see the pictures on this thread for example? Maybe they are only visible to members who are 'signed in' ??

Good point, I might have been thinking about my old FJR and Rocket3.

I've only had the rear wheel off once for a new tyre.
So remind me, we don't need to line-up any drive splines when putting the rear wheel back in?

That's correct- just line up the five holes of the wheel
with the five studs on the final drive unit,
and replace the nuts in the correct "star" sequence ( 70 Nm )  :028:

So if you see someone without one - Give them one of yours :-)

My coincidence. When my engine failed "out of warranty". I had drive shaft seal leak also. The engine was one that needed head update. So they did that. But they did want to see service records. They stepped up on drive shaft and took care of half the cost. I'm very happy with triumph. So much I added explorer to garage
