Re: The good, bad & ugly...
I have owned 2 LT's.....first was a 2000LTC that I put 90,600 miles on before it was totaled. The second and current is a 2003LTE with 139775 miles on it.
I have had no final drive problems on either one....I did replace the clutch on the current bike due to a rear seal drip...even though it was still not slipping, and yes I do pull trailers.
I replaced a fuel pump at 104k and of course the normal tires and brakes. Plug wires were replaced at about 129K...had a mysterious miss.
I did own 3 Goldwings prior to going over to BMW and actually spent more maintaining them than my LT's.
I do the vast majority of my own maintenance since dealers are few and far between and I enjoy it. My LT is my everyday ride.
