Questions: What is final drive failure and clutch slave failure?
Please don't slam me. I'm a K12LT newbie (or hope to be by the end of this week 2000 K1200LT w/40k miles) and wonder if there is a simple explanation on what these failures are? What parts wear out and what the "cost" of the parts are? And seperate if possible what labor goes along with repair.
I'm trying to figure out what it cost and if there is room for me to do some or all of the work to save some $$. Understanding from what I've read that the FD failure is about 4%, not sure what the slave failure rate is, I might not even have to deal with this if I'm lucky. Also are these seals, orings, or whatever is the failure points are a normal service item that should be changed at a certain mileage interval?
Thank you for your replies.....
