    Rear Diff protection

    My last crosstourer was involved in a spill on the left side, during which the rear diff casing, and that large nut that screws into it, was abraded quite badly. Having looked at other 2nd hand, same diff part, being sold on eBay, it appears to be one of those extremities that is readily damaged in a drop on the left side. So having had a think about it, I have come up with the pictured solution, a ice hockey puck, which I turned down on my lathe, to fit into the recess of the large nut, leaving 20mm thick rubber to protect the end of the diff. It is fixed using some Silkaflex. The same mod would benefit the VFR1200F, I guess.

    Amazing how ideas dome up after accidents.  A really great idea and I love the look.   :152: :062:
