Final Drive K1200S

Hi there fellow BM riders!

I have a question.. My final drive is in a terrible state, I am looking at reconditioning the FD, but if this cannot be done, I will need to purchase one off the shelf.

My question to you guys is..

Is the FD of a K1300S compatible with the K1200S? I heard something that the splines on the shaft for the K1300S is different to the ones on the K1200S..

Thank you for the reply Sir. My bike has 74580 KM on the ODO. I as a matter foact just bought a FD on Ebay from the UK. A slight concern popped in my head, the seller stated that the FD came off his K1200 R, I sincerely hope this will fit. It was advertised as "BMW K1200R K1200S K1300R FINAL DRIVE REAR DIFF AXLE Overhauled New Bearing".

Have a look at my Youtube posting on the condition of my FD... it is shocking to say the least.. thank God it didn't fail while I was out on a ride.. http://youtu.be/NhkM1OCIJ4w

It is toast to say the least. The splines on the shaft were also damaged and a replacement shaft cannot be bought separately.. a new FD from the agents.. a whopping 2400Usd (R 24000 ZAR)
