Grooves in driveshaft-Is it a problem?
Just bought a 2001 GP1200R as a project to keep me sane over the winter.
Stripping the thing down, and have noticed 2 grooves in the driveshaft about 5 inches or so from the end-spline end going into the intermediate housing.
Is this wear, or are they meant to be there?
don't remember seeing them on any other shaft.
Ski has done about 120 hours, and runs really smoothly with no vibration

every driveshaft i have taken out had these grooves. they are from the orings in the intermediate housing. some are deeper than others. i guess over time they get deeper and deeper from the constant abuse the shaft takes.

be sure to replace those o-rings...they do wear out. grease it well on install.

Can you replace the o rings without removing the intermediate housing?

that would be a very difficult task i think. darn near impossible in the boat
