Don't know if it has ever been mentioned on this form anywhere but the driveshaft coupler and the input diff pinion was not greased from the factory. The coupler and the driveshaft have a lock ring to kept then in place so no wear there but the pinion and the coupler float freely for the rear tire up and down travel and without grease they eat the spines away over time. GET IT GREASED if it has never done yet. Mine was running great with no noise. Mechanic just asked if it had ever been checked, then showed me one he had replaced earlier this year when the bike quit pulling. Mine had all but no splines existing from the dry wearing of the metal. This is a VERY EXPENSIVE problem.
