Talking Drive shaft

Hey All;'

Just asking. Are the drive shafts across different models the same?
LT, GT etc?

45 years riding and still more places to see.

Across all years for the k1200LT, you can use same swing-arm AND same drive-shaft as the BMW part numbers are the same.

BUT, for the K1200RS and the K1200GT (2003-2005), it is NOT the same as the swing-arm is shorter on these com[are to K1200LT (thus the drive-shaft is also shorter).

In fact, using the MAX-BMW search facility, the BMW part number for the K1200LT driveshaft (26 11 2 332 996) does not fit any other BMW models across all years.
CONCLUSION: The K1200LT is a veerrryyy loonnggg wheelbase machine ;-)
