final drive service

Post by muddy 456 »



I will be taking my rear tire off soon. What shall I do for service to the final drive things to look for? I did change the oil last year. Thanks. I have a 2013 f6b 64,000 miles.

Good time for brake fluid flush. How's the rear pads?

Certainly spin the rear wheel while laying beside it, and look for leaks. Listen for any unusualy groans. The fluid needs changed every 2yr/24k.
