Interesting, how does it separate from the final drive? I wonder why they made it like that. On my Sabre, it's splined at the final and it slides right off. Shaft stays on the bikeNo the drive shaft comes out with the final drive. the hardest part is lineing the shaft up with the swivel nuckel at the engine when you put it back together.
I have never needed to remove the shaft from the final drive. I do know if ya take apart your final drive it will void your warrenty. That is probably why I never tinkered with it.Interesting, how does it separate from the final drive? I wonder why they made it like that.

If you take the secondary drive off, it makes it really easy to get back together, sort of.......it is one of those things that if you hold your tongue just right it will fall into place. The secondary is easy to take off. Take the speed sensor off and 4 bolts and it slides right off. You will loose about a pint of oil.I've had mine apart a few times and it's a PITA to get it lined back up with the secondary drive. I've had to take the secondary loose from the bike just to get the drive shaft lined back up. It's not nearly as hard as it sounds but it's still a PITA.
