Approaching my 60K service and I do have to have the drain installed in final drive housing at this next service.
Does that mean they will change the final drive fluid?
Reason I ask is I usually change all the fluids and filters myself before it goes in.

He means the bearings, not the paint. The shaft removed from my bike looked the same as yours but the universal joints were eff'd. As I said earlier, visual inspection is meaningless. Gently pivot the u-joint. It should offer smooth operation. If you feel an stuttering in the movement the bearings are toast.
No bearings seemed fine.
