Hi,

Initially, would have to agree with the diagnosis of you bike tech. Most Kawasaki water/coolant pump would be on the left side pretty near where the gear shift would be. I am just not sure if you can buy just the o-ring or oil seal, some versions comes as an assembly, pump/impeller/o-ring/seal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

What is the correct oil level for magnaforce 80 gal air compressor?


There are various configurations for this compressor, however if yours has an oil sight glass just till to about center or at top of red dot. If no dot, to center of sight glass. For long life, change oil every 100 hours of use under heavy working conditions or sooner if you notice oil vapor coming out of vent.

When I check the oil sight glass for the level, I notice that the oil color tunr into mikly white, so I decided to change the oil, upon draining the oil from the comppressor I noticed that the oil was...


Apparently you don't use the unit long enough to get it good and hot. Then condensate builds up and falls into the oil. ( It's like turning your car ac on high defrost during a summer morning. Where the cold air blows on the windshield condensate forms on the outside). Same principal. It gets just warm enough to cause condensate to form on the inside of the compressor. To correct run longer or you can purchase a heater to go in the oil sump or keep the oil changed. Don't wait until it turns milky.

Royal star xvz1300 '05 model - there are 4 hoses (look like breather hoses) behind engine. After riding the other day I noticed one had leaked a very small patch of oil. Not even sure what these hoses...


This tube comes from the Air Box. If the oil level is to high in the crankcase, the PVC port, which is located in between the "V" of the two cylinders is actually vacuuming the oil right out of the crankcase, and it is collecting in the air box. When enough oil collects in the air box, ti runs down the overflow tube, and drips out behind the rear wheel. To check the oil level, put a 2X4 under the side stand, make sure the bike is level, (a helper to steady the bike is a good idea here) look at the sight glass on the lower right side of the engine, down by the water pump. The oil level should be 1/2 way up the sight glass with the engine cold, and not running. If the oil level is higher than 1/2 way up, drain some of the oil out until you can see the oil level read 1/2 way on the sight glass. These engines only take a little over 3 qts. of oil with a new filter. If you are putting in 4 qts. of oil, it is too much.

Air conditioner


System Inspection
Although the A/C system should not be serviced by the do-it-yourselfer, preventive maintenance can be practiced and A/C system inspections can be performed to help maintain the efficiency of the vehicle's A/C system. For A/C system inspection, perform the following: The easiest and often most important check for the air conditioning system consists of a visual inspection of the system components. Visually inspect the air conditioning system for refrigerant leaks, damaged compressor clutch, abnormal compressor drive belt tension and/or condition, plugged evaporator drain tube, blocked condenser fins, disconnected or broken wires, blown fuses, corroded connections and poor insulation.
CHECKING FOR OIL LEAKS Refrigerant leaks show up as oily areas on the various components because the compressor oil is transported around the entire system along with the refrigerant. Look for oily spots on all the hoses and lines, and especially on the hose and tubing connections. If there are oily deposits, the system may have a leak, and you should have it checked by a certified air conditioning specialist.
Fig. 1: Run your hand along the underside of all hose connections and check for leaks. If you find a leak, have it fixed by a certified air conditioning specialist.
check%20ac%20leak.jpg KEEPING THE CONDENSER CLEAR Periodically inspect the front of the condenser for bent fins or foreign material (dirt, bugs, leaves, etc.). If any cooling fins are bent, straighten them carefully. You can remove any debris with a stiff bristle brush.

Fig. 1: The position of the condenser in front of the radiator makes it particularly susceptible to collecting debris. Periodically, remove the accumulated bugs, leaves and other trash from the condenser. ac%202.gif
CHECKING THE REFRIGERANT LEVEL There are two ways to check refrigerant level. On vehicles equipped with sight glasses, checking the refrigerant level is a simple matter. Many late model vehicles, however, do not have a sight glass, and you have to check the temperature of the lines to determine the refrigerant level.
With Sight Glass The sight glass is normally located in the head of the receiver/drier. The receiver/drier is not hard to locate. It's a large metal cylinder that looks something like a fire extinguisher. Sometimes the sight glass is located in one of the metal lines leading from the top of the receiver/drier. Once you've found it, wipe it clean and proceed as follows:
  1. With the engine and the air conditioning system running, look for the flow of refrigerant through the sight glass. If the air conditioner is working properly, you'll be able to see a continuous flow of clear refrigerant through the sight glass, with perhaps an occasional bubble at very high temperatures.
  2. Cycle the air conditioner on and off to make sure what you are seeing is clear refrigerant. Since the refrigerant is clear, it is possible to mistake a completely discharged system for one that is fully charged. Turn the system off and watch the sight glass. If there is refrigerant in the system, you'll see bubbles during the off cycle. If you observe no bubbles when the system is running, and the airflow from the unit in the vehicle is delivering cold air, everything is OK.
  3. If you observe bubbles in the sight glass while the system is operating, the system is low on refrigerant. Have it checked by a professional.
  4. Oil streaks in the sight glass are an indication of trouble. Most of the time, if you see oil in the sight glass, it will appear as a series of streaks, although occasionally it may be a solid stream of oil. In either case, it means that part of the charge has been lost.
  1. Fig. 1: Oils streaks (A), constant bubbles (B) or foam (C) indicate there is not enough refrigerant in the system. Occasional bubbles during the initial operation are normal. A clear sight glass indicates a proper charge of refrigerant or no refrigerant at all, which can be determined by the presence of cold air at the outlets in the vehicle. If the glass is clouded with a milky white substance, have the receiver/dryer checked by a certified air conditioning specialist. ac%203.jpg

Without Sight Glass On vehicles that are not equipped with sight glasses, it is necessary to feel the temperature difference in the inlet and outlet lines at the receiver/drier to gauge the refrigerant level. Use the following procedure:
  1. Locate the receiver/drier. It will generally be up front near the condenser. It is shaped like a small fire extinguisher and will always have two lines connected to it. One line goes to the expansion valve and the other goes to the condenser.
  2. With the engine and the air conditioner running, hold a line in each hand and gauge their relative temperatures. If they are the same approximate temperatures, the system is correctly charged.
  3. If the line from the expansion valve to the receiver/drier is a lot colder than the line from the receiver/drier to the condenser, then the system is overcharged. It should be noted that this is an extremely rare condition.
  4. If the line that leads from the receiver/drier to the condenser is a lot colder than the other line, the system is undercharged.
  5. If the system is undercharged or overcharged, have it checked by a professional air conditioning mechanic.

Just started to noticed white smoke coming out of exaust pipe. Noticed smell of gas. Is this normal for a car this old


Looks like you have a blown head-gasket. The white smoke is actually your engine coolant mixing with your engine oil and being expelled as a water vapor. You need to take it into a repair shop Immediately.

Oil change


The sight glass should show oil whenever the bike is stationary and level, either hot or cold. The warm oil concept generally applies for the easy pouring or viscosity of the oil. Warm oil flows better and is easier to drain from sumps, hoses, radiator's etc. Warm oil will drain better from all areas of the engine to give a better indication of the total oil in the system. The sight glass is generally hi-lo levels from top to bottom. Cheers.

Checking oil & coolant level


On the right side of the motorcycle, just behind the engine cover is a crome curved cover. Under the cover is the coolent inlet. The oil level sight glass is under same engine cover. Your exhaust pipe man be blocking your view.

Coolent light on


If the coolant itself is white, it may have mixed with oil. If that is the case, you need to take it to a mechanic for some major repairs

Whats it sound like to you??


Have you notice any white smoke out of exhaust pipe or excessive moisture? You might notice it more under exceleration. If oil looks milkey and it don't take long for it to over heat, I'am sorry to say sounds like head gasget or worse. When its running stand in back of car by exhaust and smell if you smell any antifreeze, then you will know what it is. The thing to do is a coolent pressure test and then you will know for sure, at least what side its comming from.
