Well, I thought my tire was getting old but it looks like I have some play in my fixed pivot pin at the final drive. I'm going to try to tighten it up this w/e I suppose. I guess I should be thinking about grabbing the bearings too @ 30k miles, esp. before VT MOA since I'm going to be in there anyway.

I really feel this job should be down with a proper 30mm crows foot and a 12mm allen socket, but man, it's hard to find the crow in that size! Found a whole metric set online for $90! The 12mm allen should be fairly easy to get, maybe even Sears has it.

I also think my u-joints might already be out-of-phase ... does anyone have a picture (or diagram) of what the ends should look like? I think I understand the position, but it couldn't hurt for a visual.
