The countershaft seal can be pried out easily,just dont do much damage to seal surfaces(on the motor).

as to your jetting problem,put the clip on the main needle back to "stock".

and buy several "main"jets,larger,and,smaller.
"jet-tests"MUST be done after a high-speed test(check sparkplug color,should be "tan")

poping,most all the time (on bikes)is caused by an air-leak somewhere along the exhaust system,

ALSO,when you change:
--it's a GIVEN to re-jet the carb!!

Why is differential 90 weight gear oil leaking out by the bottom of foot shifter in that area you can see it leaking on ground and in starter the gear oil for a drive shaft bike not a water cooled bik

After riding the bike the oil warms and thins so finds it easier to find its easy out.
It sounds like you have a leaking seal that needs replacing.
Found out exactely which seal is leaking by wiping all oil off the bike and getting down and watching where it comes from it will start with a drip then go from there

How do i fix gear box gear oil leak ongs suzukugl drive shaft oil is working up through the starter and bottom of engine kind lie around gear sshifter

On the older bikes like Yamaha and Suzuki's, the starter had an O-Ring gasket on it's face. Your gasket may be bad, broken or missing and causing oil to get through. If you're leaking through your shifter pawl, then you're going to have to remove the case on the left side of the motor and replace the seal.

Hi i got a kawasaki 1986 gpz 400 ( fx400) fairingless it's normally called a grey import. my problem is that the waterpump at the bottom leak when the bike is warm, but if it's cold there seem to be no...

Kawasaki's are notorious for the waterpump seals going. There are little rubber doughnut seals (3 if i remember) that run along the impellor shaft. When these break down, you get the leak. I would be pretty certain on a bike of this age, that this is your problem. It isnt a massive job to do, but if your not technically minded it can get messy. The shaft is connected by a circlip on the opposite side to pump prop, and should, i emphisise the word SHOULD slide out, once the clip is released. But beware as ALOT of these become siezed and stuck fast, so some more dissasembly may be required. You can try taking off the cover and using a good instant gasket, providing that your running temp is fine, no water in the oil (if your lucky) but these cover seals are designed to pop if there is too much pressure behind them, hence me telling you about the impellor seals.

Hope this helps mate,

Mista B.

I have a 1980 enticer 300 and the carb needs ajusting. I took off the Choke and nessed with the adjustment, but Now she wount come out of the hole with out bogging then catch and then foul outs the plugs

Add an extra ground wire to your coil. If the rubber on the bottom of the choke plunger is not sealing properly you may have to replace it. Be sure your carburetor jets are clean and the intake manifold is in good condition with no cracks or leaks on the gaskets or rubber.
Now the bad news, because of the age of your machine I believe the bogg you describe is caused by an air leak in the crankshaft end seals. Usually the clutch end seal. I would pull the motor out , split the cases , and replace all the gaskets and seals. You should be able to get an aftermarket gasket kit with seals for around $30 . Resealing the crankshaft will keep your motor running for another thirty years.

Oil leak from motor. possibly coming from side case. I'm thinking countershaft seal ?? Any ideas. I bought the bike today at an auction. I think it has been sitting for a while. It has 83500km. As I rode...

depends on what side its coming from if its the left then i would check the output shaft seal out and while near there check the gear selector shaft seal both are cheap and easy to replace and just check the other casings to see if the gaskets have started to deteriate causing a leak hope this helps

I was told that a manufacturing flaw from 1990 to 1992(?)on the left case where the shaft exits is responsible for an unrepairable oil leak. I drained 3 qts of oil from the primary after maybe 300 miles....

the cheaper way to find a oil leak is to clean all the oil off the bottom of the engine and where you think the leak my be. Take the bike for a short ride , just enough to get the oil heated up to running temp and take baby power and dust the area that is suspect area for leak. it will stick to the oil and not the rest of the motor and it will show you where it's coming from.
