Does not use gear oil. the motor oil lubricates the transmission as well. Just make sure to keep the engine oil full.

    also, you want to see soe smoke on a 2 cycle engine but excessive smoke can mean your fuel mixture is too rich with oil. This will also cause it to bog because of poor fuel atomization in the chamber. Check your fuel/oil ixture and see if this helps

Antifreeze leaked out from somewhere in the back of motor .the two front holes are not leaking no check engine.temp gauge rises to the top cant see the leak i just here pressure being released and some...

if it is coming from behind the r front tire and is a 4cyl the water pump has an o-ring that fits between pump and block and is behind timing cover where you can not see it. usually if it is leaking you can look under car at the engine on r-side at p/s pump area and can see where coolant has run down oil pump to oil pan from behind t-cover. hope this helped give me more info if not and good luck................

I have a crf 450 and after riding in mud i now have an oil leak behind drive sproket.. is this easy to fix??

It should be staright forward. First of all you have to find out why it is leaking but I suspect you have got grit or some mud in the drive oil seal and replacement should sort it out.
Have fun!

Oil leak under front sproket

The oil seal on the sprocket shaft has probably gone bad. Remove the sprocket then clean the shaft to aid in removing the old seal. A screw driver and small hammer is used to pry the outer edge of the seal inward. Realize that you will butcher the old seal in the process of removal. The only other way to remove the old seal is to pull the engine and split the center case.

Tramission is dumping fluid , the rear is not leaking, or the front seal is not leaking Sooo!what could the problem be?

it could be coming up the dip stick pipe? if the box is getting over heated becouse the oil cooler is blocked then the gear oil will boil up and in time it will cook your gear box up to the point it wont work any more
if your driving it very hard and its slipping a bit it will get very hot the oil boils away,,, as smoke!

I have a 2008 Kawasaki KLX 450 R with an oil leak behind the front sproket, do you know what is behind the front sproket that could be leaking? How hard would it be to fix it?

It is an output shaft seal. Shouldn't be too hard to do depending on your skill level. You will need to have something to pull the seal out, and make sure you put the seal in squarely.

Engine bogs big puffs of white smoke from front

the engine will bog because the cutting blades are either cutting to much grass or the blades are touching the ground making it hard to keep rpm's then it will smoke a bit
