Final Drive question

I am just wondering if anyone has tried, or thought about trying using SPM to check crown bearing in the Final drives?

Thought maybe it could be helpful or maybe it could be a really stupid question. Thank you

Re: Final Drive question

I think it would be a lot cheaper to do a preemptive (and proper) rebuild if you have a 99-2003 bike than to is instrument it to tell you when it is failing.

2009 K1300GT Red Rocket
2009 R1200GS (Gone)
2005 K1200LT Ocean Blue Blue Wizard 110 K and counting...
2006 Bushtec Turbo+2 Spell
2004 330 Ci Convertable

Have ridden a Motorcycle in all 48
But lack DE, MA, RI and CT with the 2005 LT
