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.

    LATE NOTE!!!!



    I've always warned people
    away from oils that were labeled "energy conserving", but lately I've
    noticed that those same oils no longer carry that label. I've been
    seeing a new seal on the same oils; on the outside of the seal are the
    words "American Petroleum Institute" on the top, "Certified" on the
    bottom, and in the center of the seal are the words "For Gasoline
    Engines", and - surprise, surprise! - they ALL contain molybdenum
    disulfide, the stuff that makes clutches slip.

    Check the bottles of the oil that you're considering for use in your
    motorcycle. If you see the API seal, keep going. Unfortunately, a
    member named "rasolheim" is learning the hard way how expensive an
    error like that can be; I hope that I can warn others before they make
    the same mistake.

Hi I have an xvz 1300 , hasa hi pitch noise comming from g/ box at high speed Thank you greg


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, a change to a multi-grade synthetic oil THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ENERGY-CONSERVING SEAL ON THE BOTTLE will quiet (but not necessarily eliminate) 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. Broken clutch springs and bent or warped clutch and friction plates can also be noisy, but that is typically experienced across the whole speed range; fixing a problem like that would involve replacement of the clutch assembly. The transmission gears are straight-cut for strength, and tend to be noisier than bevel-cut gears, still, if the noise remains annoying after an oil change, have the dealer or, better yet, a veteran Royal Star rider, evaluate the noise to see if it is excessive.

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.

How to install a reverse gear on a shaft drive


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.

Have a 2007 royal star venture bought new, excessive gear noise .took to dealer, changed clutch, prblem was worse, they changed rear end, was ok for 50 miles then started to lock up feeling and grind noise...


You might consider contacting Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA - customer relations (800) 962-7926, press "1" for Star Specialist. See if they would consider either exchanging the bike, or sending a factory specialist out to examine your ride.
