If we make it next week or later, I 'may' have a way of doing Matt's as well, but only with the three of us here together  :o

Next week or later is fine by me, Brian. There's no rush until bad weather arrives (oh), and the more the merrier.
Does it involve two people holding a K1300 up?  ::)

Not 'holding' it up!

But it does involve one very tall, strong man and a long steel bar...and it's going to cost Matt way more than beer... 8)

I've got one of these, originally bought for lifting my Triumph Thunderbird. You're welcome to borrow it, but it's not transportable by bike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsZYVibzzrA

If it matters what gear you’re in, the engine’s too small.

Just a quick comment on the original subject of this thread... Surely there isn't a diff in the final drive; there's only one rear wheel. Unless diff is short for different direction rather than differential.
