    After reading this post I went to check out my 2008 RT and noticed that I can pull the forward part of the boot back from the swing arm. Is this indicating that the boot was not installed correctly?...

    I wish the dealer would have let me keep my failed unit, but of course they did not. I hope I don't have to repeat this exercise.

    I can't tell you what bearing went out on my 2008 RT, but I will say that I was 2 weeks out of warranty when it did. Same issue as what is being reported here. It wasn't seized, but it was VERY rough...

    That's great news and a LOT cheaper than the route I took. I don't have the tooling or shop available to do this type of work. I'm told that the new Final Drive I now have, has a different bearing....

    It's good news that you were able to do this repair on your own. It will definitely be cheaper than the $700 it cost me. This is the exact same failure that I had. Interesting to say the least. If...

    It is the latest revision. If you look closely you can see a vent has been added to the top. The new FD is warranted for 2 years or 24K miles. At least its back on the road and we're headed to the...

    Cycle Gear Service

    I've been using Cycle Gear for my last 5 tire changes. A funny thing happened this time.

    Update.
    BMW is now offering 75% coverage for the FD. I find this a little hard to swallow since the bike was only 2 weeks out of warranty and in reality, a FD should last a lot longer than 32K.

    That would make sense because there was no metal debris in the fluid.
    I don't know if we will ever know the true reason, as I'm sure they will not be opening up the FD at the dealer for me to look...

    New tires installed. Still makes a growling noise. Doesn't seem like a brake rotor issue.
    I think it's dealer bound tomorrow morning and I hope we have this resolved by the rally in PA.
