Final Drive Backlash
As I am fairly new to the whole K1200LT (approximately 2 months), I only really have one concern. Is it normal to have a certain amount of backlash in the final drive?
I only ask because if I back off then accelerate I get a fairly loud clunk as the drive takes up, other then that all appears normal. If I put her up on the centre stand is there a "normal" amount that the rear wheel should move when it is in gear or is it all "normal". I am assuming that the gearbox and final drive all take up some play.
I also have a Suzuki C90 that has a shaft drive and it appears to have less backlash then the BMW, impossible to tell if there is any noise accompanying it as it sounds as subtle as a jumbo jet.
So basically, is there a point when there is too much backlash on the Beemer?
As per my signature, I have a 2003 Titan silver, I have put about 4-5000kms on it in some fairly harsh country and I am loving it more each time I go out. My only other issue is keeping the missus awake long enough to see the countryside lol.
