Bruno has a great reputation, you may want to ask him about 34 or 37 /11 but the gears are around 600 and and the labor's damn near that much.DB

Many articles have been written about replacing the bearing, but most of them suggest replacing the shims exactly as found. I don't understand this at all; here is an assembly which has failed and we're going to replace the damaged component and pretend it never happened? It didn't go bad by itself. The new 17-ball bearing is undoubtedly better, but it's not a cure for improper assembly. Any time a final drive is rebuilt, it should be thoroughly checked out.

So much to learn . Not boring to say the least :)

As for the synth vs. dino issue. BMW specs 90w non-synthetic GL5 rated oil for this application. They sell both a non-synthetic and a synthetic oil with their label. A number of people have made the simple observation that the rather sudden increase in the incidence of failures of the big ball bearing on Oilhead bikes occured at the same time that many dealerships started routinely filling the final drives with synthetic. That is only an observation and does not prove cause and effect. But, as far as I can determine by asking owners with failures nearly every time I hear about one, there have been far more failures with synthetic lube than with dino. I haven't written down the data but my limited sample is running a ratio of well over 10 to 1. I have no idea what the actual incidence of the use of dino vs synthetic in all of the bikes is, however.
Hmmm , interesting to say the least .
