Bought my BMW K1200lt after reading about all the final drive failures on this model. My other ride is a yamaha V star classic which is also a shaft drive. The Yamaha has 13k miles and the BMW 25k. MY wife rides the yamaha. Yesterday i thought that a ride on the v star would be a change of pace. Well
you guessed it. The v star blew the final drive on a lonely New Mexico road. :mad: Thank goodness for cell phones. The bummer of the story is that the repair will cut into my BMW farkle budget.

they are all just machines

Sorry to hear it, but glad it wasn't the LT! (We've got enough!) Have you heard of others on that bike having the problem?

One night I found a goldwing forum and lurked around, curious as to what I'd find. There was a failed FD on there too! Lots of alternator problems, you name it. They also had some contributors sounding the familiar "I can't believe that Honda wouldn't / couldn't / didn't ..."

Made me feel better.
