I have a gs susuki gl 1982 driveshaft that holds 90 weight gear oil thats leaking out of the side by the gear shifter cover is there a seal that can be replaced or does it have a crack in the motor ca


Think the gear change end is not 90 grade oil ,it is 20/50. The bevel drive end is 90 but the motor is 20/50. And there is a seal in the case, unless you have a crack somewhere, depends where the leak is coming from.

My soft tail rides really stiff on rough roads. What can I do to soften the ride. Seems like the front forks are stiff. Just had shocks serviced.


As far as the rear suspension, a softtail won't ride a smooth as one with a swingarm, as the softtail has less travel.

On the front end, Harley has three different "thicknesses" of fork oil, light, medium, and heavy, which gives different suspension dampening.

If the front forks are too stiff, you could try a lighter fork oil.

There is oil coming out through the carbs into the four rubber tubes going into what appears to be an (airbox?). Not sure what the box is for. Oil is leaking from box onto the ground through a hose that I...


air boxes usually have a hose coming out of them for just that... to drain the air box of oil or water that gets in it. it doesnt attach to anything, it's just to drain the box onto the ground instead of all over the bike.

I have trouble with pulling my clutch as very stiff even though i have put it on the lowest setting


If you release everythng and spend some time with 20-50 oil filling the cable up with it. I suspect a strand of the bowden cable may have snapped inside the oter and oiling it should help to ease the problem.
A new cable should fix it permanantly.

I have chrome front forks and they seem to be getting mushy and make a clicking noise when I stop hard


The "clicking" noise you are hearing when you make a "hard stop", is the springs inside the fork compressing. This is not unusual. You can change your fork oil viscosity to stiffen the forks but they may be too stiff once you've done it, The only way to tell is try it.

There is a small screw or bolt on the down low on the fork lower slider. Take this screw out and work the front end up and down, The fork oil will be pumped out the front end. This makes a terrible mess so don't do it in your living room.

Once you have the oil out of the front end, it's best to lift the bike off the ground. Remove the top cap from each tube and refill the fork tubes with the proper amount of oil for a "wet" oil change. Sorry but I don't have that information but it will be somewhere around 10.2 ounces. Check to make sure for your year model. I put 30 wt. fork oil in my FXDWG and the forks are a bit stiff but that's how I like them. Try it and if it's too stiff, you'll just have to change it back to say 20wt or maybe Honda might have a 25 wt. oil. Do one side of the forks at a time.

THE OPERATION OF THE CLUTH ON HIS MODEL IS OF CABLE TYPE, IF THE CLUTCH IS OPPERATING CORRECTLY THE 1ST THING TO CHECK WOULD BE THE CABLE, REMOVE THE CABLE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PULL THE INNER WIRE SMOOTHLY TO AND FRO, IF YOU NEED TO USE ALOT OF EFORT TO DO THIS THEN YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE CABLE,MAKING SURE YOU HAVE ADEQUIT FREE PLAY AT THE LEVER WHEN RE FITTED. OBSERVE THE ROUTE THE CABLE TAKES BEFORE REMOVAL AND REPLACE IN THE SAME WAY, YOU MAY ALSO TRY TO GET SOME LITE OIL DOWN THE CABLE, THOUGH I SUSPECT THIS WILL BE ALMOST INPOSSIBLE IF IT IS THIS TIGHT TO OPPERATE

Oil coming back through carbureter


This is quite common on Harley engines. The oil comes from the crankcase breather system. The engine breathes through vents in the rocker box covers and the heads. There is a "umbrella valve" in the center section of the rocker box covers. Over time, these rubber umbrellas will become stiff and not seal properly. They are easily replaced by removing the four bolts that hold the top rocker box cover on and replacing the "umbrellas" and gaskets.

Some riders choose to reroute the crankcase breathers underneath the engine by installing aftermarket breather systems on their bike.

Bike has been standing for 3/4 months started straight away but gears feel stiff could this be that the oil needs changing


Start the bike till running temp is reached .while the engine is hot ,change the oil and filter.take great care not to burn yourself .When the engine is hot you will find the oil drains away much faster and all the old stale oil will drain out of the engine & gearbox & clutch ..Once you have replaced the old oil with new oil and filter .this should cure the problem of stiff gears .
