well i am a 4% member

lol it must a 10 percent club by now.
34K miles and rear diff was grinding so bad on the way home from the
last trip. i thought i was going to have the oil come out and it was raining hard.
thankfully i had bought a spare and the special socket etc.
so she is repaired.
it is funny but i bet she has been trying to tell me for a while
but a bearing noise can come on slowly and i don't ride it more than 1 or 2 times a week i think i might of got used to it than a little more noise and so on

Re: well i am a 4% member

Welcome to the FD failure club. Glad you had a spare to keep her rolling along. From the different accounts I have read, they don't give all that much notice before hand. Hopefully your spare is in good shape or was rebuilt by a reputable person/shop.
