Driveshaft Experts please look - PICS
Okay, enough self-debating....I was able to capture well enough some close-ups of my driveshaft markings that have me puzzled as to whether or not I should spend near $300 on a new OEM shaft.
For those of you who dont know yet, these are markings Ive noticed since after my mishap last thursday of my C-clip falling out of the floating ring/shaft after 1.5hrs of riding with my new carbon seal and boot.
Please tell me what you guys know (More pics coming now...)

That clip is done! The ridges are signs of wear against the shaft groove. Get a new clip & you'll be ok, After the new clip is installed A good test and easy check is to put a rubber band or zip tie on the throttle to WOT & with the seat off and the carbon ring area in sight crank the motor & see if the metal top hat thingy wobbles, if not you're good, if so you'll need a new shaft.
