The first thing to do is determine if the oil is motor oil or gear oil. If the oil is leaking from the final drive end( gear oil ) it will have to be removed and inspected for bearing wear and have the seal replaced. If the oil is leaking from the motor and then running down the swingarm, the final drive and swingarm will have to be removed to replace the output shaft seal.
Thanks and I hope that this helps.

What kind of oil should i use?


Use a oil that has a JASO rating, all major brands have that rating (ie Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha or other oil designed for motorcycles.) Use a 10w40 is a good all around oil for most climates. I hope this helps you.

How much oil does a 2004 honda shadow aero 750 hold? I bought my bike used and didn't get a owners manual.


it takes between 3-4 quarts but that model has a dip stick on the oil cap so use it to check as you fill,also make sure to only use motorcycle oil,car oils break down to fast and were not designed for motorcycle use, honda makes a very good oil, i would use a 10w-40 for cold weather and 20w-50 for hot weather,also i would suggest a synthetic oil, it will shift easier and make those movable parts last allot longer. ( preventative maintenance )

How to change rear tire on 2004 750 honda shadow aero? Do i need to pull the final Drive?


You do not have to remove the final drive , the wheel is resting on a spline shaft. Center stand the motorcycle or lift the rear wheel, remove the axle bolt, knock out the spacer, and slide the brake panel out of the way. Now the wheel is resting only on a splined shaft. Grab the wheel and gently slide it away from the final drive ( off the splined shaft ) and roll it out the back of the wheel well. When replacing the wheel be sure to get some MOLY60 paste from the Honda dealer and grease the spline before putting the wheel back on.

2004 honda shadow 750 small hole at the bottom of the petcock valve is leaking fuel. Is it a small screw that fell out or a bad gasket, or?


Your petcock is vacuum operated. Gasoline leaking from the vent hole indicates that the vacuum diaphram is ruptured. A new petcock assembly is needed.
