1993 honda shadow 1100 leaking engine oil from slave cylinder


Small O-ring, if that is engine oil, if it is brake fluid oil, you have bad slave cyl. gasket.
The O-ring is difficult to change, the clutch shaft is going through it from slave cyl. to clutch. You can try change it from left side, but I think easier from right, but you have to take off right engine cover and complete clutch, then slave cyl., pushing it out from left to right site thru a rod hole.

Buell thunderbolt belt change


You do not remove the swingarm to change the belt. You need to loosen the rear axle and slide the rear wheel forward to remove tension. there are some plastic covers that need to be removed to get to the front pulley tho.

Dont put any kind of stop leak in a motorcycle..You will have to replace the gasket. It leaks when it's warm because the oil thins out due to heat. You could possibly try to smear some chemical resistant gasket silicone in the crease and hope.

1998 thunderbolt


I would look at possibly rebuilding the carb or at least a good cleaning.  It sounds like there may be some gunk in the jets. As for the missing component it might be the flasher as that sounds like the location to the right of the battery on a mounting tab. I do have the manual I'll have to dig it out.,,
