Will a neautral switch leak oil on a Yamaha 1100 virago? If so how to fix?


Hi, Robert if it has come loose or the gasket/seal has failed then yes it will leak just replace the gasket/seal and tighten to the proper torque for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

Can only select 1st neutral an 2nd gear


Hi Meihana and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch dragging slightly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.
3. Corners wore off shifter clutch dogs.
4. Shifter return spring bent or broken.
5. Bent shifter rod.
6. Shift lever is loose on the shifter shaft.
7. Shifter forks sprung.
8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
10. Transmission oil too heavy.

How do you change the oil on a 1985honda aspencade goldwing?


Center stand the motorcycle.First place your pan under the oil filter cover under the front right corner of the machine. Using a six point socket loosen the filter cover bolt and remove the cover. Dump out the oil in the cover being careful to save the spring and the washer that is stuck to the filter.Many Goldwings have lost there washer in a previous oil change , if lost replace the washer. If you desire change the o-ring on the bolt and the o-ring on the cover. Put the bolt back into the cover and place the spring first over the bolt, then the washer, then the filter , so the spring is pushing the filter against the engine. Put the new filter onto the motorcycle and snug up the cover bolt just enough so the oil wont leak out. Do Not Over Tighten The Cover Bolt. Now place the pan under the right rear corner of the motor. You will find a horizontal bolt near the bottom right rear corner of the main block of the motor. It will have an aluminum or copper sealing washer. Take off the bolt and let the oil drain out. When the oil is finished draining , put the bolt back in with a new sealing washer , if needed , and snug up the bolt just enough so that it does not leak or come out. Again do not over tighten the bolt. Now pour in the new oil through the dipstick hole. Be sure you use JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. You will need 4 quarts but you may have a partial quart left over. The quantity is something between 3.4 and 4 quarts. Run the bike and double check the oil level with your dipstick so you do not over fill.

My front rocker box is leaking oil


Simple fix. Take the fuel tank off and remove the four bolts that hold the rocker box covers on. If the rocker box is leaking there, simply put a new gasket in place, carefully align the top plate and put the bolts back in. Torque them to 100 inch pounds.

If the lower rocker is leaking remove the smaller 1/4" bolts and then remove the larger 5/16 inch bolts. Remove the larger bolts a turn at a time until they are completely loose. Lift the lower rocker plate and replace the gaskets. Reposition the lower plate and align the pushrods in the rocker arms. Do not mix up the push rods, mark them if necessary. Tighten the 5/16" bolts down evenly until just seated. Then put the 1/4" bolts in. Torque the 5/16" bolts to 15-18 ft. lbs and 1/4" 10-13 ft. pounds. Reinstall the middle and upper rocker boxes and torque those bolts.

Good Luck
Steve

How to change oil 1978 goldwing gl1000


Get 4 quarts of JASO MA certified motor oil. I recommend synthetic , it will shift better when hot. Amsoil is a good choice. Place an oil pan under the front of the motor. Use a 6 point socket to loosen the bolt on the round finned oil filter cover on the front right corner of the motor and spin it off.Take the oil filter out of the cover and make sure you save the washer that will stick to the rubber seal. Pull bolt out of cover and replace o-ring. put bolt back thru cover, first slide on spring,then washer,and then filter and spin back onto motor pressing filter against engine case. Snug bolt but do not over tighten. Now remove bolt in the middle of the front/bottom of motor(large one in middle , NOT small one under water pump). Check aluminum washer,if bad replace.After oil has drained put bolt back in , do not over tighten.Take off fill plug on right rear corner of motor(by final drive shaft) Using a funnel pour in 4 quarts oil (3.9 is correct amount, 1/10th quart does not seem to bother anything). Put plug back in , start up, and check for leaks.

When i shift gears on my motorcycle sometimes it pops in neutral an a little oil leaks from the shifter


Popping out of gear is caused by excess wear and/or damage to the transmission gears and/or shift forks. The gears engage each other using what are called "dogs". When the dogs become worn, they allow the gears to force each other apart - especially under accelleration - causing the transmission to pop out of gear. Repairing this mean a complete teardown of the bottom end of the engine will be needed.

The oil leak is a much easier fix; where the shift-shaft goes into the crankcase is a seal. Remove the retaining clip and carefully pry out the old seal and replace it with a new one.

Elusive neutral when shifting up or down on 2006 model


The torsion spring on the stopper lever assembly is probably weak. The stopper wheel indexes into a depression on a segment mounted to the end of the shift drum. Pull the right case cover off and then pull the clutch basket off if the stopper wheel arm is not accessible with the clutch in place. Mount the new spring then re-assemble. Part number for the spring is 90508-26539-00.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. Look at " shift cam fork " item #9. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.
Please consider a top rating for this solution. Thanks!
