    Alarm Drive shaft bearing failure, Clutch side

    Friend and I checked our bearings and both found this on our 2013, 163 Pro's at 1500 and 2000 kms . Of course both machines are going to need new driveshafts. The only thing I noticed was a clicking sound and a could feel it in left running board on occassion but htought it was ice build up. This happened almost from day 1. My buddy had no clue there was an issue.

    The 600 of mine with similar km's, looks fine.

    That's not cool, there is no collar to lock it in place so I am assuming that the bearing is press fit on, is the bearing seized solid? I would think that it did not have a tight enough press fit because if it did and that little bearing seized it should rip the bearing apart and you would hear it right away. Just went out and looked at mine and it looks fine but I don't have the miles you do yet. Hopefully they have the parts to get you up and running asap.

    Mine had 1500 miles. Dropped off at 4pm and new driveshaft will be in by Friday. Not sure why the driveshaft spun inside the bearing. The bearing is not seized.

    I regreased mine when I shimmed my jackshaft and tightened up top pulley. It was very white from water contamination (not the otherside though). Still,,,??
