Just a thought for you...On most Japanese bikes and fourwheelers etc... they do have the stators designed to be immersed in the crank oil. So there is usually a port, as you mentionned, and if you removed that stator cover, and tilted the bike to that side, most of that crankcase oil will seep through that equalizing port.

The oil does not harm the coils - the stator works on the concept of magnetism anyhow. The oil being in direct contact with the charge and lighting coils could help cool them down also. But the main reason there is oil in the stator is because if it's an electric start model, the starter gear is located in that same housing. The starter turns a idle gear which spins freely on the crankshaft. The hub of this gear fits inside the magneto (flywheel). Of course the magneto is fitted with a key slot so it's coupled to the crankshaft. So when this starter turns over, it causes the gear to lock into the magneto roller mechanism (or starter clutch) and then turns over the crankshaft. Once the engine is running, that same gear simply rotates freely and the starter is free from rotation. So the oil is necessary for the 'idle gear and crankshaft lubrication' as well as the 'idle gear to magneto roller mechanism (starter clutch)'. It makes it a pretty compact design doesn't it.

Which seems to have solved the problem I had with the bike jumping out of 5th gear. Now on the not-so-good side. I now seem to have very high pressure in the crankcase enough to spray oil out of the channel that links the generator (rotor) area with the gearbox and coats the rotor and stator with oil. Its as if the oil isn't being picked up properly or maybe if the oil runs through one of the gearbox shafts - do I have to align the oil feed hole in this with something? This was the one thing that I wasn't certain about when I rebuilt the gearbox.... would this cause the problem? I can't find any crankcase breathers that could be blocked so I assume the bottom end vents up the channel for the timing chain, and then out the top camshaft cover and the thick black pipe on the top (which is clear). ,Either you have excess blowby or a passage somewhere is blocked. Leak down test first, then its back to removing covers until you find whats blocked,,,

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and/or tires worn or damaged.
2. Engine/transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links too tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine.
7. Internal engine problem/flywheels shift.
8. Broken frame.
9. Stabilizer links worn or loose.
10. Rubber mounts loose or worn.
11. Rear fork pivot shaft nuts loose.

Pressurized crankcase ?


Yes, more than likely the crankcase is being pressurized.

The usual cause is worn piston rings/bores. As the piston moves up on the compression stroke the air/gases are forced downwards into the crankcase. These pressurized gases try and escape to the atmosphere any way they can - either from the rocker cover, the oil-dipstick tube or through the rubber seal on the oil filter.

If there's an 'oil breather' on your engine, try cleaning it out. But .. the usual cause is a worn engine

Shifting mechanism, not picking up higher gears. Will shift into low and back to neutral, nothing higher. The bake has been sitting for some time.


CHECK YOU ENGINE OIL DRAIN IT AND SEE IF ANY TEETH ARE ON ITS MAGNET IF SO YOUR GEARBOX NEEDS STRIPPED AND REBUILT IF NOT CHANGE THE OIL IT MIGHT HELP AND IF NOT THE SHIFT DRUM OR FORKS COULD BE WORN OR DAMAGED.

Xr 200 fork problem


no air required. the air valve on top is to release pressure after heavy pumping. ie motorcross... check seals. you can run a feala gauge inside seal to clean dirt out or replace if worn. put in correct amount of oil an off you go....

Bike needs to be in neutral to start but wont


The gear selecter mechanism impacts on a contact breaker, this completes a circuit allowing the starter to have power. Either the wire has a loose connection at the loom end, or the contact breaker is worn in the gearbox. Trace wire exiting crankcase towards rear of gearbox area for damage.
Ckeck also the tightness of the foot lever on the shaft, it may not be actuating gear selector forks fully to allow breaker contact. You may need to take the sidecover off and replace the contact breaker, or take it to your dealer/mechanic.
Goodluck, Cheers.

I'v got a yz250 jumping out of 4th gear under load. all i can find wrong is a slightly worn selector fork, can this cause the balls up?


it may be worn because it is being pressed upon. i would think you need to adjust/shim your shifting mechanism so the gear fully locks into place, not just the fork holding it there barely

It is the dogs on the gears themselves that are worn. Only solution is to replace them, which means an engine strip or full replacement with another engine from a salvage shop.
