Short story: was on a day trip and ABS light came on, chked axle nut and was loose again... 2nd time in 6 mons.
i carry most tools to do most anything so out comes torgue and tighten nut to 106 foot pounds and a little extra... nut not gonna do that again..... OPPSEY heard a not good crunch sound,
short story is hauled it back home on a pals trailer dissembled the rear end and gear box and found a destroyed wheel axle bearing ...
what i get for well nm learned my expensive lesson, and yes somewhere in the past i forgot to use lock nut.
so took the down time to replace all seals in forks and bearings in front and rear, oil/air filter, plugs, added more led lights and new paint job.
resembled and noticed a distinct grinding noise took gear cover back off and inspected ... i had already cleaned and removed all debris from the destroyed bearing... a few very minor blemishes on 2-3 gear but not enough to make the noise it made. so resembled after determining there was nothing major wrong in gear box, then after turning wheel .. with gear cover and gears off i noticed the break caliper was moving left and right.... now am thinking might have bent wheel axle, BUT i put a center point on axle as wheel turned and axle stayed centered, no play left and right of wheel.
on the oil lvl in the final drive what keeps all the oil 1 1/2 cups from eventually leaking out the over flow hole next to the wheel axle bearing ring lock?
