Hey guys. Hopped on my k100 paralever equipped out fit to go to work. I heard loud thumps coming from my diff/shaft. I limped home about 2km. The sound is worse under power but is still there on coasting with the clutch in. Im thinking my universal joint has let go. Any ideas has this happened to anyone and do you have some advice for me in regards to repair. Cheers

Sounds to me you are right. Probably best to pull it apart first before chasing parts.
I have a spare rear uni that I would be willing to part with but no shaft or front uni.
PM me if you are interested and BTW I wont want a lot of rarzoos only to cover costs.

 I thought that was a bit of toilet humour......a K owners description of a visit to the bathroom after a night in the pub.....
