If you are referring to the small chrome cap that is located on the top of the rear differential it presses into the housing and can be removed by grasping with channel locks and pull upward while twisting. It will most likely scratch and or crush upon removal. A new one simply taps into place until firmly seated.

What type of oil do I use in the drive shaft of my 1994 honda shadow 1100. I have heard 90w, but have read on here to use other oils. What would be the best.


The final drive should use 80/90 hypoid gear oil for the worm gears. If you would like the final drive to run cooler (less friction) use synthetic hypoid gear oil. Use synthetic 80/90 hypoid gear oil and change it every other motor oil change.

Have 10000 miles on my bike does the shaft drive oil need to be changed or what?


Final drive assemblies on motorcycles generally cost over $1000. They tend to show signs of dirt after only 5000 miles. Having driven shaft drive motor cycles for over 30 years I usually change my 85/90 Hypoid gear oil at every second engine oil change. It is never very dirty but if taken into the sun light will show some fine metal chips (nothing to worry about). I highly recommend using synthetic Hypoid gear oil. It will cause less friction and the final drive will run at a much cooler temperature. One quart of Hypoid gear oil will change the rear end oil 3 or 4 times so it is good, cheap preventive maintenance. Simply take off the large fill cap, place a pan under the small drain bolt at the bottom of the pan,remove the drain bolt, drain the oil, put the drain bolt back in, and fill the final drive to the bottom of the larger fill hole (usually a quarter to half cup of oil), then replace the large cap being careful to only snug it tight enough to seal in the oil. If you over tighten it, it is designed to break! Be sure to check the owners manual on the exact amount of oil to use. Honda has changed the fill technique for some of the newer models. With a higher fill hole on some newer models you may be over filling the final drive, so you may have to measure the amount. Too much oil will cause waste and may cause over flow out the top vent. Happy Trails.

it is usuall for a little oil to come out of the breather, you can buy a filter type thing, that goes on the end of the breather hose. Check your oil level,make sure not too much.

My 1990 st1100 makes a small ticking noise when it is cold but as soon as it warms up it quits what could it be


Probably just something in the valve train, perhaps a slightly sticking valve. Once it warms up or gets the oil it needs, the problem usually goes away.
