First Rear Drive Thread of New Board
I did the first oil change on my rear final drive since I've owned the bike at 16,000 miles (now at 24,000).
Lots of stuff on the magnetic drain plug. Is this the precursor to failure of the bearing? Or, is this normal?
I know somebody will want me to describe what "lots of stuff" is. Well, stuff attracted to a magnet, but no big "chunks". Fine shavings like what would come off a grinder.
Hope that helps, but I'm probably going to replace the bearing anyway.
