Re: Cost of Final Drive Repair
Curious about what technique(s) the rider might have that contribute to the FD failures? I don't beat the clutch, rapidly up/down shift, I change the fluid every 3-5k miles, or otherwise "abuse" the bike.
I've read other threads about clutch failure without fluid leakages; some don't know why they failed. But then, I read the responses about feathering the clutch with RPM at 2-3k when 2-up, etc. when I rarely exceed 1500 rpm when starting from a stop with 2-up.
What rider technique, or bad habits, may contribute to parts failures?
