My '02 R1150r final drive boot caught fire on Saturday.
It appears that the boot was trying to occupy the same space as the brake-disc. The boot is not clear back against the shoulder at the rear-end. Could this have deformed the boot enough to rub, and catch fire?
I recently had an independent mechanic change the tires. Could he have bumped the boot and caused this?
How much am I looking to spend, best-case scenario?
