2002 Kawasaki Concours how to properly check the oil level


Hi, Dario if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

Type of lubricant used for drive shaft

I think it takes about a quarter of a quart.
Manual says 80w winter, 90w summer.
I run Royal Purple 75-90w, so its covered all year.

Where is the battery located on a 2005 kawasaki concours 1000? and how would i go about charging the battery? or does it have to be taken to the shop? bike has been sitting in the garage for over 6 months,...


I don't know 100% for sure where the battery is but typically on Japanese bikes they're under the seat. You can charge it yourself using a motorcycle battery charger. Sears also sells a charger that's good for cars and motorcycles and will condition a battery that's sulfated. Changing the gas in the tank would be a good thing to do to help prevent the possibilities of fuel related problems rearing up when you show the bike. Other than that, a good going over before you put it on the market is a good idea.

What grade transmision oil should i use in the rear wheel hub for the drive shaft on my xvs1100


Any quality 80/90 hypoid gear oil will work. If you use a synthetic hypoid gear oil the rear end will have less friction, generate less heat , and last longer. Final drives are expensive and do not use much oil , maybe 1/2 cup. I recommend changing the rear end oil every other oil change.

When do you change the fluid in the rear differencial. I was told by a mechanic that the rear differencial fluid was low and had metal shavings in it, and that the fluid needed to be changed and that it...


I'd say yes. The differential fluid is often overlooked by oil change technicians, even though it's something that should be topped off periodically.

It probably would cost more than that to repair it once it wears out.
Axle Housing Assembly Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Lift the vehicle.
  2. Drain the lubricant from the rear axle housing.
  3. Remove the rear axle assembly from the vehicle.
  4. Remove the brake caliper brackets from the rear hubs.
  5. Remove the rear cover and gasket from the rear axle housing.
  6. Remove the rear axle shafts from the vehicle.
  7. Remove the rear differential assembly from the vehicle.
  8. Remove the brake backing plates from the rear hubs.
  9. Remove the rear drive pinion shaft yoke and seal from the drive pinion.
  10. Remove the drive pinion from the rear axle housing.
To Install:
  1. Install the drive pinion into the rear axle housing.
  2. Install the rear drive pinion shaft yoke and seal onto the drive pinion.
  3. Install the rear differential assembly into the vehicle.
  4. Adjust the differential side bearing preload and the backlash.
  5. Perform a gear tooth contact pattern check.
  6. Install the brake backing plates onto the rear hubs.
  7. Install the rear axle shafts into the vehicle.
  8. Install the rear cover and gasket onto the rear axle housing.
  9. Install the brake caliper brackets onto the rear hubs.
  10. Install the rear axle assembly into the vehicle.
  11. Refill the lubricant in the rear axle housing.
  12. Lower the vehicle.

I think that changing the fluid would take about an hour, and depending on the garage, and the labor rate, that they might elect to take the rear cover off of the differential, and drain it that way and replace the fluid once it was put back on. He could inspect the gears while the cover was off and tell you how bad it was.'

Do you hear any clunking or gear mesh noises from the rear when putting it in gear or running the vehicle?


Some mechanics would simply top off the fluid and wait until it wears out, which could be several thousand miles in the future.

Use gear oil for it of the recommended viscosity in the service manual.

Generally thicker than motor oil.

So, adding fluid would cost only the amount of the fluid plus some labor.
A bottle of fluid might cost $9.99 or so depending on where you get it.

You might be able to do this yourself if you crawl under there, remove the fill plug at the top, and just add gear oil. If there isn't enough room you might drive it up on some ramps and then crawl under there.

Motorcycle 1998 Kawasaki 1500 Vulcan


to my knowledge there are no grease points on any shaft drive bike,all the universal joints are sealed and should oulast the bike,the only grease i ever put into a final drive assemly is the drive hub which you only do when the rear wheel comes out to replace a tyre,just note..make sure it gets done because if the drive hub wears due to lack of grease in most cases you will have to replace the whole drive assembly because the drive hub is part of the final drive and they are VERY EXPENSIVE..hope this helps
