    Hello All.
    Recently I bought an used Honda vfr1200x 2017.
    However I didn't realize that the shaft drive was crashed. The bike is working good and there is no oil leak. Is this something that I need to replace? Is affect the functionality of the shaft drive?


    Thank you so much for your help.

    i shudder to think of the cost of a replacement shaft/swingarm! I would guess its lost its oil , been repaired and re-filled, unless that is the original scape marks? You could always change the oil to set your mind at rest? At least then you know there is no metal/debris floating about. And its running with oil!

    Pity you didn't notice it before you bought it, but its purely cosmetic, the plastic part is cheap to replace and suggest you get a plain black ice hockey puck, get a small part of one end machined down to fit inside the recessed 'nut' and glue it in place. unfortunately the final drive does stick out a bit if the bike goes down
