How about a new can of worms?
I don't have this issue, but found this on another forum. I'm sure some of you guys have read it. This doesn't address the rear drive problem and I've not heard of many drive shaft failures, however a couple drive shaft failures I cam across on this forum seem to have occurred on bikes with about this much mileage.
"After reading about the drive shaft issues during the past year, especially the February Issue of BMWMOA, I'm thankful that I own the Concours. The article in a nut shell says that the driveshaft of Paralever design is a "consumable item" by BMWNA and should be replaced every 40,000 miles at a cost of $636. This problem is not remedied through regular maintenance. I believe that most models employ this design now and it could give out at any time around 40,000 ish. "
