Hi Yall. I have an R1150RT that I've put about 25k miles on in the last year and a half. Love the bike, but I've replaced it with a 1200RT. And now it's time to sell the 1150RT. I had the 12k service done, and they found some play at the rear wheel. This is indicative if a failing final drive.
Question is -- do I have the final drive repaired? I've been reading the forums for options. I'm confident in my wrenching skills to get the thing apart, but not to rebuild it myself. Seems buying a used final drive is just as iffy.
Or is some play in the final drive something I should try to sell the bike with? I'm honestly not sure how close to failure things are -- i'd guess its something that would just go completely without warning.
Anyone have experience here who can edumacate me?
