When i back it up or move it forward when it is in nutral,, i cant hear it when the bike is running nor can i feel it when im ridding only when the bike is off and i roll it forward or backwards any ideas on whats wrong?,check the final drive lube level, make sure that's good. if that's ok then the problem probably is a worn worm gear that only makes noise when its moving slowly. To make sure its the drive and not tranny itself, see if it makes the same noise in 1st with the clutch in rolling it around. ,,,

Grinding noise in either motor, gearbox or drive shaft on low speed going uphill. Gets worse when going faster. Souns like something needs oil change or top-up.


Look at the universal joints on the 2 ends of the drive shaft. The hubs may have dried up and wore out you might be grinding metal. If so, you need to replace the universal joints before the drive shaft falls out.

Where do i look to see how much gear oil i have in drive shaft gerabox1982 gs suzuki l 1100


Since the other "answers" failed to note that this is a shaft-drive bike and the OP asked about GEAR oil and not engine oil....
On the side of the rear hub that has the shaft drive, look near the top of the hub. There should be a filler-cap of some sort. Usually on the face of the hub, but above the center-line and slightly to the rear
.
Put the bike on a level surface and put on the center stand (or have a friend hold the bike level). remove the filler-cap (inspection cap). The gear oil level should just start to be at the lowest point of the opening for the cap.

Adjust clutch


Have a 2005 Kawasaki contour shaft drive. When the bike is off or on in neutral when I'm rolling it back the cluch is clicking. Is this that the cluch is out of adjustment? If so how do you adjust a shaft drive? Thanks

Clicking noise in first gear, and only first gear, when bike is on stand and running, the noise is gone as soon as you ride it its back again...


Is this a shaft drive model...a very common issue is dry pins in the rear wheel hub....that transmit the power from the rear drive unit to the wheel......disassemble...clean pins with scotchbrite pad, then grease and reassemble.

Hello. i would like to know the direction drive shaft spins looking from rear of bike cw ccw


If the drive shaft is on the right side of the bike it will spin counter clockwise (ccw) when the cycle is moving forward.
If the drive shaft is on the left side of the bike it will spin clockwise (cw) when the bike is moving forward.

Whining from transmission or shaft drive , yamaha xvs650 2004 mod


Check the gear oil level in the shaft drive and make sure it is the right level, and that you are using the proper type of oil (check your service manual).

However, I understand it's normal for these bikes to exhibit some gear noise at low speed due to the design of the transmission (straight-cut gears).

Replacing broken drive shaft


the u joints definitely need lubrication and as far as breaking a drive shaft I personally have never seen one break unless someone has been really hammering it or doing a lot of burnouts

There is a universal joint in the drive train that can go bad. It may require you removing the drive shaft side of the engine covers but you can access it yourself and I suspect you will see the problem.
You're not having any problems with the bike in any particular gear are you?
If you like to DIY I can send you a very good link to a website that has exploded views of your engine and the parts you may need. You can even purchase the parts from these people at a very reasonable price.
Just let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards,
RSelvy
