Drive shaft updating

I have a question with regards to the placement of the damping washer.

When I lowered the rear-wheel drive, there was a plastic washer between the shaft and the gear on the hub

so I assumed when putting this back with the k1300 drive shaft the washer should go in the same area but if you look at the manual from 2005 it does not really show this or make mention of where it should go

If you look at the 2009 repair manual it shows this washer to be put at the front of the driveshaft, where the long splines are, and not at the rear

Now my bike was never opened up, had the original shaft and washer was at the back, so this is where I put it when I installed the newer driveshaft

But should I have put this washer in the front as per the newer instructions

Or does it even matter.....

2005 manual shows this

2009 manual shows this

Re: Drive shaft updating

I would call your dealer and see if they have come across that situation themselves and if it even really matters.

Errors of omission like this in Factory Publications are annoying at best and dangerous at worst. One simply cannot 100% trust the OEM publications. Try to find out if there is a revised version or later correction of this error.

Re: Drive shaft updating

The plastic washer goes onto the final drive side, so that the shaft knuckle can't
hit/rub against the nut from the pinion gear.

The other way around (like in the reprom pic) is wrong.

Check out the K1300 installation manual.
Thats the way it should be.

Re: Drive shaft updating

I've dropped my final drive and I'm trying to remove the 2006 shaft to replace with a 1300 version.

I can't pull the shaft out. It seems stuck after some movement.

I have removed the plastic piece on the final drive to shaft bellows so it's not that.

Is there a trick to pulling it out further? I'd prefer to avoid brutane unless that's the prescribed method.

Re: Drive shaft updating

I don't recall requiring brute force, there was some pulling and tugging, but it did come out, there is really nothing holding it in place at the front, so once the rear is dropped and it's clear just pull.

I did find I had to use a rubber mallet to get the shaft back in, it did not just slide in easily, but a few taps of the rubber mallet, got her in all the way, and after a whole season of riding I have found no ill effect.....

If my garage was done and I had installed the heater, I would take it apart over the winter now, just to see how the swap has held up, and if anything has gone wrong on the inside, but, it's just to cold....and getting cold by the day...
