If its the transmission fluid your talking about then thats easy to fix. You just need to empty the old transmission fluid and add new. This might keep it in first gear longer but ride it a few times and it will adjust. This is a Tomos moped your talking about right?

SOURCE: Oil level above full line

It's quite possible that when you fill the motor you are checking the oil level shortly thereafter, i.e. within 10 minutes, or you are filling the oil and checking what the level is BEFORE starting the motor (in this case the oil has not had chance to circulate and drain back in to the sump). Once the bike stands for an extended period (a couple of hours or overnight) you will find that the oil has drained from the head of the motor, and other places, back into the sump and therefore shows at a higher level in the sight gauge.

SOURCE: water leak/mixing with oil

The gasket on the gear shaft is dead. Water runs around it between the outer cover and the gearbox, and unfortunately the gear shaft needs to go all the way through them to get to the 'box. There should be a flat O-shaped gasket around the shaft, and that's leaking water into the oil, and out the side. This is a pretty tough job if you havn't got the right tools, so maybe rather take it to a workshop mate! Hope that helps!

SOURCE: 2003 vulcan 750-how/where to check engine oil level / noisy

there should be a little window just below the oil fill area that says high and low, that's where you gauge the level of oil you have. it's not a dipstick, and not very precise, but that's it.

How do I put gearbox fluid in ? Where is the level glass? I have a 1997 mitsubishi magna


Gearboxes usually have no oil dipstick / looking glass. On the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with (brass) washer. This is where the gearbox oil goes. To check the level is to stick one finger in downwards, when there's no oil at this level its usually too low.

On the bottom of the gearbox there's a similar bolt with washer to drain the old oil. The bolt can be magnetic - and can look a bit like a mushroom. Tiny particles from the gears stick on there - this is normal. Large bits of metal can be a cause for concern.

Always use the specified gearbox oil - wrong oil makes changing gears hard.

Hard to change gears in my v6 hyundia


First thing to check is oil-level in the gearbox. If far below the filler hole - refill and look for oil leaks around seals and in clutch housing.

If oil level is ok - it might need changing or when serviced recently, it might have been filled with the wrong oil.

Somewhere on the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with a seal ring. Usually this is the filler hole. Oil level check is simple, stick a finger in downwards. Should feel the oil level.

Gear boxes need the right oil viscosity and are quite sensitive - meaning changing gears gets difficult specially when cold.

My transmission makes noise until I depress my clutch


sounds like the main shaft bearings within the gearbox itself. i would of said the release bearing but u already changed it. the main shaft doesnt spin with the clutch pedal pressed. check for oil leaks and check the oil level in the gearbox.

I have KYMCO S 200 and need to know what needs serviceing at 300 miles. What type of oil to use in engine and gearbox and what type filter if needed.


At 300 miles the only thing you might want to do is check the gearbox oil level and then lube and adjust the chain. Check with the dealer on the filter type. As to what type of oil, use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

Gearbox over heating light comming on


The tranny may have an intercooler and the fluid levels could be low. Check your tranny fluid levels and inspect for leaks. This tranny cooler will be upfront and look like a small radiator.

Finished about a 300 mile ride was pulling into the garage and noticed that gear oil was pouring out the left side of the bike


Grretings!

Sounds like your gear box is wounded... actually, its possible excessive gear box oil is comming out the vent. Check the gearbox oil level before your next ride and check for leaks.

Oil level for Suzuki TS 185 (1989)


Drain the oil and put 750ml back into the gearbox. If your bike doesn't have a dipstick and you have good, clean oil in it, drain it into a plastic bowl then put it right back into the engine but measure it before you pour it back in. When you get 750ml in the box then look at the level in the box. That is the level to maintain.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Noisey gearchange


Hi Al,
I know you are looking for feedback and I hope I can help.
I have a FLHR Road King Harley Davidson and believe me It clunked real bad when I bought it (7,000 miles), I checked the clutch primary chain, well within tolerance, also Clutch plates too.
I know your engine is wet sump and the gearbox uses the same oil as the engine?
I changed my gearbox oil and also double checked level as the amount that came out wasn't enough?
Since then pure smooth cold & Hot, so maybe the wrong viscosity oil? Nice & Thick cold but when thinned due to warm up and at operating temp not coating the gears so bulk rings failing slightly?
There you go one to look at?
Press the Blue Button please to appraise my FREE! Effort/s, Thank You!
