Hi Vman from Az and it looks like you are working on the final drive of a 1986 1200 interstate and you are either having problems getting off the bearings or seals are hard to put back in, Im a new owner to mine which I purchased a month ago and I put it in the shop of a proud workman of goldwings and I have no experience with these bikes but thats what I came up with, leave me some notes on whats happening Vman

Looks suspiciously like a spline problem or a pinion gear problem. Can't see the details in the picture. Would be curious to know the reality of it as I ride a GL1200 as well.

Bingo. Driveshaft seal that keeps the rear differential fluid from creeping up to the ujoint boot is worn out several hours of work for a $9 part!

Hi My name is Vincent and I've owed over 50 bikes since 7 yrs old. I have a great imagination and some day come up with my own invention some day, your problem seems that youre having alienment probs and the parts " might be the issue or the way you did it ,think back and mabey taking it apart you might have clogged a very important line passage either though putting a seal on improperly or in taking it a part you missed a proper alinement of gasket mateing or in the main assy a flow blockage in the finale drive unit itself Vman, stupiud about the goldwings.
