ElevenFifty Posted October 22, 2007 Share Posted October 22, 2007 At 60K+ on my '04 1150RT, I've started changing FD fluid every 3K or so ... - no signs of metal flakes - no wheel wiggle at 12/6 and 3/9 - FD does not get excessively hot HOWEVER: ...at low speed, riding two-up there is a grinding sound from the read of the bike - it could be a scalloped ME880. The tire has a few thousand miles on it - lot's of highway riding so it's not pristine. At speed, I just hear the normal low growl that accompanies the early stages of normal tire wear. Those of you who have been through this, could you post a list of any symptoms you observed on the way to an FD failure? Thanks DH ;~) Link to comment
