Clean, with no visible signs of wear. Which I would expect with this type of diff, as the gears are straight cut and full contact. I've had to do a bit of shimming on nearly every off road diff I've used.

Since the P8C is belt drive, no need for the outer shims. I think as long as there is oil in the diff and the screws holding it together are tight, it will be very rare for the Moto diff to fail. Farmer- how do the internal gears look in that diff?
