Final Drive Service
« on: May 23, 2020, 03:49:05 pm »
I was going to do the oil change on the rear drive - bought a kit from Motor Works.

Looked this afternoon - only my second ride on the beast - and I cannot see a filler hole looking on the top and on the left side of the bike - only a drain hole.

What?! ???

Did they make some as sealed units?  eh? What?  :o

This is a 2009 by the way.

They are not a sealed unit and yes it's a bloody faff to do.

You need to remove the wheel speed sensor and fill through the hole.
