I'm back, well almost.

So I consider myself to be a pretty dedicated rider. I ride year round and don't mind getting wet, there really isn't anything that will keep me from riding but about two years ago I had a final drive failure and then a kid so it's been a while since I've been in the saddle. Fortunatly I am in a position to get my bike fixed (99' K1200RS 55,000mi) and the local dealer doesn't have a service department worth giving money to and the next closest dealer with a good rep told me it would be $800 to $1100 for the 12,000mi maintenance and the final drive could be anywhere from under $300 to an unknown amount depending on the damage. This seems to be a little pricey so I have started looking for a used final drive and a private mechanic to do the work. I have heard that there is somebody out there who has fixed the fd problem and sells rebuilt fd's but I don't know how to find him. Is there any body here that is familiar with this and might be able to point me in the right direction? Thank you.
