    ADVRider thread on R1200LC Driveshaft issues and U-joint Failures - over 1500 entries

    My '14 Rear U-Joint developed a sticky spot on one phase at 48,000 miles, I replaced my driveshaft.

    The OEM U-Joint is "Not serviceable" however that joint is available https://www.drive-lines.com/elbe/tem...ies=ELBE%20106

    This ADVRider thread details U-Joint Replacement and shaft alignment https://advrider.com/f/threads/05-dr...#post-18086826

    There is a company in Michigan that rebuilds driveshafts for LC bikes with mixed results reported.

    Ted Porter/The Beemer Shop does not offer a driveshaft for LC bikes yet, they do offer replacement shafts for earlier models.
