    I will definitely mess with it this winter! I'll let you know what I found!
    Ad Hoc M50: are you talking about the problem that makes the final drive fail at around 30,000 miles?

    I hope for a recall, but will not rely on it. This winter the bike will be torn down and inspected. It's like burn said, as long as you have time, you can do it. Cutting that seal off may be a bit irritating, but it can't be that bad. I can't wait for the how to video when Burn gets all his parts to put it back together. Should be good!

    I put the entire bike back together today,and then tore off the rear tire,and final drive again.
    Then I tore into the final drive,you can see what the rusted broken problem is.

    I think one point to remember is that if you take the bike to a mechanic (dealer or other) they CANNOT inspect this problem without disassembly. It must be torn apart to discover the rust or dry assembly, which they should be able to price out before they begin. If they tell you it looked ok without disassembly, move on to a more reputable mechanic. I think in every case, we should take pictures, document our cost to have this done or even if we do it ourselves, and go after Suzuki for reinbursement, and report the defect as burnchassis did.

    Question 1:
    This video here, is this what's directly behind the oil seal you had to cut off?

    Question 2: (or is this question 2 & 3??)
    That nut with the tab you cut off, will we all have to replace that as well? Or is bending the tab out fine so that we can bend it back in upon assembly?

    Removing that nut is only needed if replacing a bad gear or needing to go further into the drive.
    If your just looking to grease/inspect,just buy that oil seal,and maybe those o-rings,just to be safe.
    Your supposed to be able to bend that tab out of the way,and maybe reuse it ,but i didn't mess with it.

    On another note ...I'm expecting the UPS truck any second with my drive parts!!!!
    I'm dyin over here!
    I'll take video in full of the reassembly.

    Great news that you're back on the road (with a lot more knowledge of the bike too). I need to wait until I get home from work to watch the vids (youtube is blocked here at work - for good reason ).

    Burn:
    Were your "O" ring and nut correct? If you got things all back together they must have been or you used the old parts.

    So what exactly do I tell the dealer

    Wow - pretty incredible! Wish we were closer...I'd gladly pay you the $78/hr to check mine.

    So, I've had my '08 for about one month; has about 3800 miles on it. Bought it used from a private seller and haven't taken it to the dealer yet for the once over. Was thinking about doing that soon and maybe having them do the 4k service. After that I need to try changing my own oil, but I don't have garage, jack, stand, etc.

    Main questions:
    Should I go ahead and have them check this?
    If so, what exactly do I need to tell the dealer and request of them?
    Should I go to Suzuki dealer so they can document? I've been pretty happy with dealership I used for my Virago 250...but they're Kawi/Yamaha dealer. They do work on most major models though.
