Re: KLT Drive Shaft, Front U-Joint NOTCH'y
Mine developed a notchiness some time ago and I acquired a spare low mileage shaft from e-bay. That was 40 K ago and it has not really gotten any worse but I will replace it next time I am in there (have a total of 98 K on the bike). U-joint failures on KLTs are very rare but they have happened. I look for dryness and hardness on the grease seals, if they look lubed and pliable I continue to use.
