charlie VT video (final drve)

Thanks Charlie for your time you put into your video.I now have over a 1,500 miles mostly two up and the gear oil still looks as clean as it did when it went in.I still have my finger crossed but the first time I tried changing the bearing out without checking the preload the oil started graying up with only 500 miles and started to show signs of looseness at 1.000 miles on the bike.Does this mean I don't keep an eye on the final drive and check it when ever I ride no it doesn't I check it with ever thing else on the bike.So thanks again and every body else that had anything to do with the video that Charlie made .Does this mean I feel any better that this problem hasn't been solved by BMW ! No but at least know I feel as thou I can do something about it.So thanks again Charlie your the best.
