Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

I rode for 6 hours today. This is the furthest I have ever ridden! I arrived at my destination and saw that the rear wheel hub is a copper color rather than the usual silver color and there is grease on the wheel rim. The rear hub has a spatter of dark residue. Can I safely ride home?

This sounds serious. Either you have a dragging brake , easy fix, or some one forgot to fill your final drive with oil (or you have a leaking seal). Definitely check that you have hypoid gear oil in your final drive so you do not destroy a $1000 assembly. If your final drive has no oil and it pours out as fast as you out it in, the damage may already be done. I would drive home checking the final drive level every 50 miles or so , topping up as needed. It beats leaving your bike far from home and having to take a bus. If the bike is not drivable, take a bus home and go back with a pickup or car and trailer.

How to change rear wheel bearings on a 2005 jeep liberty


Today's wheel bearings may be sealed within the wheel hubs on your vehicle. You will have to replace hubs which have wheel bearings inside, if this is the case.

If bearings are sold seperately, it may be possible to install in the hubs.

The departing airport will not usually have the destination arrival time of a flight. It's possible the time you saw was a delay in departure time, however favorable weather and a strong tailwind can help a flight make up lost time.

Looks like it the flight departed 20 minutes late and landed 12 minutes late. 11:10 11:30 18:55 Landed 19:07

Hyosung GT250R Tacho not working


These bikes are never senen with many miles on them when for sale, invariably they have issues uncommon to a newer bike, this sis due to the workmanship and metalurgical issues etc, they are clones but thats where the similaritys end, they nevr last from all I ever saw of these bikes.
If you mean loses power on hills due to clutch slippage, the springs i know get weak fast and lose tension sufficient to engage fully thus allowing plates to slip and losing power to the rear wheel, if you mean otherwise nobody can tell you this way correctly.
