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.

Cheers, Jay

How do i check the gear oil level


Simple - get a drain pan. Pull the drain plug on the left side of the bike under the shifter and let everything out. Check what is there. Put the plug back in and open the clutch inspection cover behind the LEFT foot pedal. POUR IN A QUART OF NEW HARLEY DAVIDSON PRIMARY OIL. YES, IT TAKES A SPECIAL OIL. Don't put the old stuff back in.

I got my oil changed on my vstar 1100 about a week ago. Rode it locally but did not put on many miles. Over the weekend I went on a long ride with a few friends. At one point we were riding at between...


The o-ring on the filter housing could be the problem, or maybe it was not tightened properly. You will need to clean all the residual oil off, position you bike in the upright position and determine the leak source. Hopefully it's not a case cover. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Small amount of oil on the bottom of crank case on the kickstand side! its not pouring but does run down the kickstand! bike only has 10k miles


The oil could be coming from anywhere. Just because this is where you see the oil doesn't mean that it's coming from there. When riding, the wind blows the oil around and sometimes you see it well away from where it's leaking.

You need to wash the bike paying particular attention to cleaning all the oil off the engine. Then, take the bike for a short ride of about ten miles or so. Check the plugs where the crankshaft position sensor and the voltage regulator plug into the case. Also, there is a large O-ring between the engine and the inner primary case. This could be leaking. For that matter, the cam chest cover could be leaking and running all the way across the bottom of the engine and dripping off.

A method we used to use was after washing the bike thoroughly and taking the bike for a short ride, we would powder the suspected area with foot powder or talcum powder. Blow off the excess but the oil would hold onto the powder giving it's source away.

Good Luck

Where is the oil plug to my honda 600 1993 shadow i want to change the oil. shoul i change the oil after riding 500 miles @ 75 miles per hour it was changed before i took te trip?


the drain plug is under the motor in left front of the crankcase it faces the out side not straight down, and it is behind the radiator hose. riding the bike at 500 miles at 70 mph will not hurt the oil you only need to change the oil every 3000 miles.

Sparks and burning from exhaust, no control over speed.


You have a unique problem caused by excessive oil and carbon build up. The sparks are from excessive oil burning, as is the smoke, and not being able to shut the engine down or contol it is called pre-ignition. There is so much carbon built up inside the combustion chamber it is acting like a glow plug when it gets red hot.

Beyond that I can't say how or why you are getting the excessive carbon build up, other than from the oil.

Double check the oil level. Maybe somehow the engine is being over filled?

Stuck in gear


ry useing blue LOCTITE on the pinch bolts and other fasteners to keep the shifter from vibrating loose again. I had the shift linkage vibrate loose on my Thruxton when it was new, I had to fix it on the road to get home.
