EBC brake pads

2015 GS, 60,000 km Just finished changing the rear pads for EBC double sintered and noticed one OEM pad has stainless hardware clipped to the back. Is this req'd with the aftermarket pads ?
Also had my 1st look at the final drive splines, dry, a bit rusted but not seized. should have looked long ago but a bit of moly grease has things sliding nicely.

S/S hardware + fibre shim

Its back together with the S/S hardware and a 2mm thick fibre spacer that was lurking between the hardware and the original backing plate. Clips nicely onto the EBC backing plate, lots of room for everything.

Splines ok? I have 10K on a 17 GSA and will have to take a peek sometime over the winter.
Just so I know ya know?
How was the rubber boot? Did you have to replace it?

splines

I should have taken some pictures at the time but lowering the final drive was not very difficult, I used a floor jack to support it and lower slowly while prying the boot from the swing arm. On re-assembly pay attention to the underside of the boot to ensure its seated properly.

The rubber boot should last you a very long time. I would say 6-8 years or 100K miles. Of course your riding conditions and care will influence your experience. A bit of 303 UV Protectant Spray for Vinyl, Plastic, Rubber every now and then will extend it's life.

I'm doing a 36,000 mile service on my 17 GSA at the moment. This is how my rear U-joint and splines looked:



This is the third time I've serviced the FD splines.

It is a good idea to pull the driveshaft early on in the life of your bike and grease the output splines and forward U-joint. It is a bit fiddly to get to the front and release the clip and even more so putting it back together, but if you do some research and know what to do, then it is not a big task. This is not something you need to do very often unless you do water crossings or ride on salted roads. The lube up front is to protect against corrrosion more than it is to prevent wear.

I was told by my local BMW tech to put antiseize on splines every 6,000 miles!

Ride while you still can!!

I believe the anti-seize will sling off.....most suggest a moly like Honda has or others, I use Liqui Moly!!

Yes anti-seize while better than nothing will heat and fling.

I've been working on a major 40,0000 mile service on my 07 R1200GS. I've moved to 5,000 mile intervals because of having mutiple bikes its just easier to look at any odometer and see when maintenance is due. Also with modern oils/fluids 5,000 miles ain't nothing.

As part of that I wanted to check the upper U-joint, drive line and splines at the transmission output shaft so that meant pulling the swingarm which also meant also time to maintenance/replace the swing arm pivot bearings.

Last Saturday @ 40,405 miles I took everything apart cleaned and inspected to find the drive line, both u-joints and all splines were is excellent condition. A slather of some Honda Moly Paste 60 and reassembled. For he record the stock swing arm pivot bearings were somewhat dry and one was gritty. I had extra's on hand because even if the stockers seemed in good shape while I was this far they were getting replaced with freshly packed new bearings and races.

Glad to find parts were in good condition and glad that done.

This was my 14's shaft after 17,500 miles, I bought it with 12,000 on it and decided I needed to baseline the maintenance everything.






It took a lot of persuasion to get the front u-joint to come off of the transmission output shaft


All cleaned up and ready to reinstall.

The secret is to use a lot of White Lithium Grease on the Boots to seal them

And I was told by my local BMW shop the shaft is sealed for life and never needs to be lubricated. Both of them are wrong.
