    ATTENTION ALL M50 OWNERS! My issue resolved! FIX YOURS NOW B4 IT'S TO LATE!

    Then please call this number 714-572-1490 (SUZUKI HQ) ,and complain like I did to make the report,but be sure your stuff is rusted before you complain.

    I HIGHLY suggest everyone lubes the rear drive of their 50.Do it now in 20 minutes ,or do it later ,and wait for weeks for parts.
    Remove the final drive,(via my video)set your drive on the ground...shaft facing up..then take your hand and smack the end of the shaft compressing the spring somewhat fast..If rust comes out your in trouble,cut that boot off and lube that %%%% up or you will be like me ,and Spikes.
    My issues is not an internal transmission issue,when in fact it was the rear drive.
    I took it off,but I didnt take it apart to look inside I didn't want to cut that rubber seal off (This lesson cost me $83.14) The propeller shaft,and gear were mush inside...seems odd no metal came out on the magnet when I drained the oil.But anyways....1 more week for parts,and $175.00 (overnight shipping),and I'll be on my M again.
    I told my wife I can make it to the strip next Saturday!...If looks could kill lol.
    SPIKES!!! DOUBLE CHECK YOUR FINAL DRIVES BRO!!!
    I'm a happy camper today.
    Here is a parts list of what I need.

    How can you ever ride it again and hold your head high after all the bashing you just did?

    Good info.

    Bashing? How by sayin every M will break no matter how you ride it ?
    This is VERY true IF YOU DONT FIX IT NOW!
    Someone is always first to learn...some pass on the information,and some don't.
    FWIW The shop MGR told me today it doesn't matter how it's ridden.....upkeep is another story.
    Like I said, this part can't be seen or accessed without taking it apart,nor is there any PM (grease it)on it via suzuki.
    Hes been a shop mgr for 32 years,and he told me hes worked on bikes with major issues ran by old men that never go over 55 mph,and then he has kids that obviously beat on stuff,and it last forever.
    "It doesn't matter how you ride it..If it is going to break it's going to break.If those parts would have remained greased throughout their life,they may or may not have broken" quoted from the shop MGR at Suzuki.

    Burn, can you please post the page number/piece number of the piece that failed from the M50 Service Manual, please? I think the page number is 4-11, but I'm not able to identify the rusted piece you took pictures of... I think it is number 25 (propeller shaft), is it?
    Thanks!

    Yes draf,that is the main drive shaft,and the gear it meets inside the final drive housing.
    4-11 is the page ,and #25 is the shaft.#21 is the other piece,and then all of the seals,and washers etc.

    You need a jack, a flat piece of wood (2x4), 22mm socket, 2 14 mm sockets or wrenches,needle nose pliers,rubber hammer, maybe a 3/8 drive 8 inch extension to beat out your axle.
    Then of course you need grease,and beers,and 20 minutes of your time.

    Or...if you're like me...you can hope that it won't be an issue because you have a 2006.

    Yeah...I'm that lazy.

    Knowing what I know now? I would definitely do it.You may still have years ,and 10,000-30,000 miles left,or more,and then again,you may not.
    If your going to do this order the boot you need to cut off so your not down any time waiting for parts.
    Order seal #23 on the M50 manual on page 4-11.
    If I can save even 1 of my fellow riders from this disaster I'll be happy.
    I got off easy with a "freewheel" when it broke,but it could also have locked up the rear tire at 75 mph,and the results may have been much worse.
    Do it for peace of mind,if nothing else.
    Apertureguy? to just hope your 06 is different then my 05 is crazy thinking.
    It's simple to do ,and it's possible it could save your life!
