84 gl1200 driveshaft

Post by bikefan » Sat Nov 25, 2017 6:29 pm



I recently bought a 84 gl1200 and rode it once- it rode fine exept the rear tire was bad, I have an 85 parts bike that had a good rear tire so I decided to put that one on the 84. First thing I noticed was the driveshaft came out with the final drive and I have been fighting it to get it back together for the last two days- the last time I put it together I could feel the ujoint through the boot and it was turning as I turned the shaft but I noticed a loud clicking noise when I spun the wheel and when I put it in gear the wheel would still turn. I wound up putting it all back together, started it,( no strange noises) but put it in gear and ..... nothing. What in the world am I doing wrong?
