Sorry, but the crankcase in the Royal Star has no room for the additional gearset that would reverse the rotation of the output shaft. If it's absolutely necessary that your motorcycle has a reverse gear, you might consider one of the newer Goldwings.

It is not economically feasible to put a reverse gear on a motorcycle that was not designed for it. As an example, the Yamaha ATV's that have reverse have 5 different transmission shafts compared to the ATV's that don't have reverse having 2 shafts. This means the engine cases would have to be re-engineered to hold the additional shafts to be able to reverse the direction of rotation of the engine and have it go through the same output shaft. For the record, the Honda Goldwing with reverse uses the electric starter motor for reverse, not the engine.

Yamaha V star Final Drive shaft


The drives for a 650 and an 1100 are different part numbers, so it probably wouldn't fit.

However, you can buy what parts you need to replace here:

Change gear oil 1981


Drain is on the bottom of the drive shaft. Fill is on the side of the drive shaft. Fill the shaft drive assembly to the bottom of the threads of the fill hole. Takes about 200-300ml.

The only place you put "Gear oil" in a shaft drive motorbike such as yours is in the shaft drive bevel drive housing on the rear wheel.

1987 yamaha xt600 teneree slight vibration in 5th gear but you can drive through it could it be my balance shaft timing


The balance shaft isnt likely to jump a tooth, unless someone has installed it incorrectly. And if this was the case there would be problems in all gears

Youve probably done this but check the chain and sprockets are in good condition, and adjusted correctly.

2007 xvz1300 Royal Star Venture gear whine at 50-60mph is related to shaft drive pinion gears or clutch basket


Unfortunately, you can get noise from the transmission, clutch basket, drive shaft, pinion gears or rear wheel on the Royal Star. No way to tell which you have so:

Barring a failure of the clutch basket, a change to a multi-grade synthetic oil THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ENERGY-CONSERVING SEAL ON THE BOTTLE will quiet gear and clutch noise. Energy-conserving oils tend to make a wet clutch slip. Try Shell Rotella-T (T6) synthetic, available at Walmart for about $19.00 a gallon, I've got 111,000 on a Tour Deluxe with it, and it just keeps going...

The drive shaft on the Royal Star can also make noise if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that Honda Moly 60 paste on both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will eliminate that aggravation.

Hypoid gears in the final drive can also be noisy. Short of having the drive disassembled and replacement shims installed, changing to a good synthetic 75W-140 lubricant will quiet or eliminate the whine.

Splines and pins in the final drive and rear wheel assembly can also cause noise. Remove the rear wheel, put a thin layer of Honda Moly 60 paste on the pins, dampers and in the drive spline, ditto with the mating spline on the final drive. I relubricate all of these every time I change rear tires, probably more often than necessary, but it's convenient to do when the wheel is off.
