As seen in this post, my shaft drive is broken. What I need is this part (or the entire two-piece shaft):

1994 K1100 shaft drive 20180311
1994 K1100 shaft drive 20180310

I've been searching for a used drive shaft on different websites, and so far I found exactly one - on eBay from America, so the part's cost + shipping comes out to more or less the OEM cost, which is expensive.

Is anyone selling that part in Europe? Please let me know if you do!

I just sent an Email to two of my contacts in France (Honest and reliable).
As soon as I get an answer, I will let you know.

If the one you found on eBay is the one I saw I would advise you to not get it.  The photos of the Final drive end had some pretty beat up looking splines with not a lot of life left in them.

There were two listed by James Sherlock who is a U.K. seller that you might want to look at.

Here is somebody in Europe who could help you.
He has one, but he has to check if it's in good shape.
He's a very reliable seller and his prices are better than what you can find on Ebay.

Yeah, the US one is exactly what you posted. 

I'm looking at the lower-mileage, 1992 one (I'm assuming it will fit my bike despite being a different part), and I'm wondering - the rear universal joint looks thinner and less beefy than my version, but I assume it's probably better than the more used 60k-mile one, right?

Stefan did you or anybody else have the drive off the bike and was the uni removed from the drive at any time recently.

I just had one of my contact in France contacting him. Let's see what's happen.
In fact I will start to advertise the service of this contact because he's a very reliable guy and seem to have very decent prices.

What I am trying to find out is  that if the rear uni was not snapped in correctly as the front part snaps in over the circlip the uni will slowly work forward and becomes decentralized on the shaft and wacko the party starts and ends very quickly.  I have suspected that this could have been the case on several similar failures over the years.
I fixed a K1100 of a guy that was passing through and had a similar failure, he had the shaft apart recently and didn't know to snap the shaft back in so was not sure if it had been done.
This is one of my pet theories.

Yeah, the contact has the exact part I'm looking for, and I'm buying it from him. Thanks again for contacting me with him!

I have absolutely no idea if that was the case, I certainly didn't have the shaft out before.

So parts 2 and 3 are (as I assumed) vital, and I'll be buying brand spanking new ones. 

Any other parts I might want to grab, or is that all?

I've also read something somewhere about lubing up the connection between the shaft and the transmission, could you please tell me more if you know?

Make sure the paralever bearings are ok. They are the small tapered roller bearings at the joint of the swingarm and the drive unit.
