SOURCE: 650 V-Star Classic Bike goes into gear but won't move

Known issue with the 650 vstars...no recall from yamaha though. The drive shaft splines are **** and they shear off on the shaft and the side that goes in the gearbox. Gearbox (rear drive unit) = $825 Shaft = 160. Have to buy the gearbox as a whole because yamaha is greedy.

Why is differential 90 weight gear oil leaking out by the bottom of foot shifter in that area you can see it leaking on ground and in starter the gear oil for a drive shaft bike not a water cooled bik


After riding the bike the oil warms and thins so finds it easier to find its easy out.
It sounds like you have a leaking seal that needs replacing.
Found out exactely which seal is leaking by wiping all oil off the bike and getting down and watching where it comes from it will start with a drip then go from there

How do i fix gear box gear oil leak ongs suzukugl drive shaft oil is working up through the starter and bottom of engine kind lie around gear sshifter


On the older bikes like Yamaha and Suzuki's, the starter had an O-Ring gasket on it's face. Your gasket may be bad, broken or missing and causing oil to get through. If you're leaking through your shifter pawl, then you're going to have to remove the case on the left side of the motor and replace the seal.

My 2001 yz250 is leaking alot og gear oil when idoling out of a hose coming out the bottom of the bike then wen i shut it off it starts leaking coolent out of another line coming out the bottom of the bike...


The leaking coolant is a sure fire sign that you likely have a blown head gasket or your water pump is not pumping water any longer and the bike is overheating.

The leaking oil could be coming from your power valve vent - is it pitch black oil and is it coming from the front of the engine?

What color is the oil? Are you sure its gear oil? Is the gear oil milky and foamy? Is the gear oil level high or low? Is there water in the oil?

Sorry for all the questions - there are several things that could be happening here.

I have a metallic noise from the clutch direction. only when i drive not when the Motor runnin in stand


I've heard this before and it turned out to be the front belt drive pulley was worn in the splines area where it goes on the transmission final drive gear. The tell tale sign is an oil leak from this area about the size of a quarter or half dollar after you ride. You can wipe the oil up and it won't leak anymore until you start the engine or ride the bike. This is oil running down the spines of the final drive gear due to loss of tension on the quad seal behind the pulley spacer. The metallic sound is the sheave of the pulley rubbing the backside of the inner primary. Check the oil level in your primary and your transmisson. If the transmission is low, this could be the reason.

Good Luck

Just changed primary gaskets and all seals on this side i have oil dripping never been in gear just started up could it be crank breather problem


Did you change the seals behind the front belt drive pulley? The front pulley is made of cast iron and the final drive gear is made of hardened steel. It's specifically made this way so that the pulley wears instead of the expensive and difficult to replace final drive gear. When the splines in the pulley wear, the pulley loosens up and the tension on the "quad" seal behind the spacer is lost. This allows transmission oil to run down the splines of the final drive gear. Check the oil level in your transmission and see if it's low. When you start the engine or ride the bike, it'll leak a spot about the size of a half dollar. If you wipe that up, it will not leak anymore unless you start the engine or ride the bike. You'll have to pull the front pulley off to check the splines for wear. If they are worn, Harley makes a kit to repair this with.

Now, it could still be the seal in the backside of the primary. A lot of people make the mistake of putting this seal in and assembling the primary with the seal left dry. When the engine starts, the mainshaft starts to turn and the friction burns the lip of the seal up before oil can get to it. The seal is destroyed in the first ten seconds or shorter. When you replace the seal, always put a gasket sealer around the outside of the seal and put some oil or light grease on the lips of the seal before you assemble it.

It's not your crankcase breather as that is at the top of the heads. The two large bolts that hold the air filter backing plate on are hollow and the crankcase breathes through these bolts into the air cleaner.

Good Luck

Do the timing belt cover on a 1996 camry have a seal or gasket that can leak oil, mine seems to be leaking for around that area. If so how to replace the seal/gasket?


The timing cover itself does not seal any oil from leaking. It is just a cover to prevent debris from getting into the timing belt and ruining it.

To find the oil leak you will need to remove the timing cover and inspect the seals behind the cam gear, crank gear, and oil pump drive gear, and the oil pump to block seal. The most common leaks on these are the cam gear.

I have a 2005 LT80 that is making a whining sound consistent with the velocity of the transmission and seems to be getting worse. Any ideas?


there are 2 possibilities

Yes, you need to change the rear gear oil.
Back of the bike where axle runs through left crankcase. There is a small 10mm bolt on the bottom.
Take that out and the gear oil will drain. This is the drain bolt.
When empty replace the drain bolt and remove the fill bolt/cap 10mm on the side of the left crankcase. Should be approx 2 inches above the drain bolt. It will be marked right on the case.
Fill it up with gear oil until it runs out the hole your putting it into.
Screw the cap/bolt back in and your good to go.

Yes, your drive belt is breaking,tearing. Located on the left side of engine under clutch cover.

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.
