05 RT Replace Final Drive?

Recommended Posts

What does it take to replace this?  Do you keep the smaller pinon bearing or upgrade to something newer?

Morning  Sonor

 

I'm not sure what  your options are as  the early (pre 8/06) small pinion bearing final drive was used on the pre (8/06) I-ABS (wizzy) brake 1200 bikes. 

 

You would need to go to a  post 8/06  final drive to get the larger rear pinion bearing but those drives were for the later I-ABS gen2 (non wizzy) brake bikes.

 

It might or might not work due to possible rear wheel speed senor conflicts. I haven't ever tried it or done it so I really can't give you a positive yes or no.  

 

My BMW parts book still shows a different Gen1 & Gen2 final drive so if we go only by the book then they are not swappable (you would think that if one final drive would work for both pre 8/06 & post 8/06 then BMW would only list the later drive for all models)
