Rear Brake Disc Noise - Propeller Shaft Wobble

Hey gang...I'm a newbie to the forum, and enjoy what I've read so far. I've got excessive noise from the two-piece rear brake disc on my '07 Rinny. It occurs nearly all the time. Yes, the rivets are loose and I do understand that this has been an issue with this type of brake disc. In checking it out, I noticed there is wobble in the propeller shaft - mostly coming from the tranny end on the drive line. You can see that the wobble also causes the brake disc to move slightly.

How much shaft movement is acceptable....and also, with the brake disc also wobbling, could this be part of the reason for the excessive disc noise?

Should I be pulling the propeller shaft out and looking at the C/V joint? All boots are in good shape and I notice no play anywhere.

If the noise is something I just have to live with....OK, but I am very concerned with the movement of the drive line. Any suggestions would be appreciated, and thanks for your patience with my first post.

I would pull the shaft and check out the splines, they can start rusting and they wear real fast once that happens and that may cause a little wobble. Also, if you can see the rivits are loose, fix that now, don't wait for a total failure when your out riding, that will ruin your day. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure... Good luck...

If your bike has a extended warranty the dealer will put on the new style (rear disc) no charge. (08). The new disc has no rivets. I had mine replaced at around 12000 miles.

Update....rode all day in the Uwharrie Wilderness (NC) today....didn't hear the brake disc a single time all day. I'm gonna see what the dealer says on a replacement.

I'll take the advice on the propeller shaft and check it out. Thanks for the comments.
