    If that nut were loose, yes your bearings are probably toast... but it may be worth playing with it by tightening and turning by hand etc.... Worst case, you can find a used one pretty cheap. Check the flea market here, and try the IBMWR fleamarket... there is usally a lot of stuff on there, with some good folks. I would use eBay as a last resort for something like this, though there are a couple of good bike-breakers who know their BMS stuff...you can try to contact them to see if they have anything that isn't posted.

    Had the EXACT same problem with the rear drive on my 84 (build date 9/83) R100RS about 8 years ago! However, I caught it before any rear drive damage. Contacted Oak about it, he said some of them got out of the factory without the bolt being torqued to the proper value. Torqued mine to the required value, no further problems. Sorry you weren't so lucky .
