grasslander Posted October 21, 2007 Share Posted October 21, 2007 May be a failure here. 2005 R1200ST built 06/05, washed the bike Friday afternoon. Let it rest on the side stand and a bit later looked over and saw this. The stuff almost felt like a coarse graphite. Small amounts around the brake rotor carrier, but mostly coming from the tube area shown. I put the bike on the center stand and got around 3-mm play at 12-6 and 9-3. Looks like a spline issue to me. I'll be off loading it at Engle Motors on Tuesday AM and we'll see what they say. I'm not riding it again till the slop is gone. BTW 15k miles in the clock and still under warranty. No play at 700 miles ago. (I check this stuff when ever I check tire pressures.) Fluid replaced at 6k and 15k not that it probaly matters on this. Is this the first ST? Last month Engle sales told me that hadn't seen any R12XX FD failures. Well maybe the first? Link to comment
