    Yes I agree, shaft drive is just lovely, take the bike out of the garage, jump on and ride, get home put it away.....brilliant and of course when touring no need to lug lube about. Having said that I had a Scott oiler on my SV 650, lubed the chain well and the back end of the bike which the dirt just stuck to! Yep shaft drive for me:)

    The Scott Oiler is a top notch product. Once the chain is fully oiled, you can turn the rate right down. More power, better life from the chain. Used it on my TRX 850.
    Belt drive is also OK.
    Shaft (with paralever) is best, at a price.

    Hi guys and girls. I'm currently on a trip (to Phillip Island for MotoGP) with 7 other bikes one of which is a K1300S. Beautiful bike but it had the seal replaced on the outside (left dide) of the drive a few weeks ago and today it leaked again all over the caliper and onto the left side of the tyre. He has left us to get help in Canberra, riding very carefully, hopefully will be fixed tomorrow. Made me realise shaft drive is not without issues. Apparently the shaft only has 150ml of oil on board. And you can't simply top it up because to get to the oil plug you have to remove the rear wheel.

    Just about split my sides laughing at this. Gordon, just accept it as a sickness and enjoy it. I keep trying to convince myself to sell my '92, but keep riding it anyway, lol
