Is it commom for oil pumps for 76 sportster to not pump oil when gas is in oil?

If the oil pump is somewhat worn, and the oil is really thinned out with gas, yes there is a possibility it will not pump. I had a 1976 XLCH, that I had to do the top end on. I checked the oil pump and replaced the gear set. I believe there may be a wear plate on either side of the gear set as well. If you drain everything from the tank, and take the oil pump apart, clean and check for wear, replace those parts mentioned, make sure the housing is not worn or damaged, put it back together and time the oil pump, it should take car of your problem. Fill the oil tank with Lucas 20-50w or 50w Lucas Synthetic. Oil this thick will eventually mix in the primary chain chamber and cause the clutch to slip. I just used to change oil more often. Oil is cheaper than a new engine or clutch. One thing: to own a 1976 XLCH means you need to like to work on bikes. Personally I live for it. I now have a 1981 XLH that I brought back to life.

How to replace a clutch in my honda goldwing gl1000

First of all make sure you need a clutch. If the clutch only slips for an instant when you let out the lever. You may only need a cable. You may be able to remove the clutch cover at the back of the motor(very very limited space). Unbolt the springs and remove the plates. It can be done on the 1100, with out unbolting the motor and spinning it for access. If there is enough room it would certainly save the time of removing carbs,radiator,left frame section, unbolting and spinning the motor to get better access.

I have a 01 yamaha yzf 600 rr and i know it needs a new clutch how hard is it to change the gears

Your bike has a faring on the left side so you may need to remove it to gain access to the left outer casing for removal. You will not be replacing any gears. The only thing needed are new friction plates ( fiber plates w/ cork surface ). The outer pressure plate comes off with 6 bolts. Then the friction and metal pressure plates slide out from the center clutch hub. Install a friction plate then a pressure plate, friction, pressure, friction etc.. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I need to change the clutch on my 1981 Kawasawki KE125

It should be under the left side engine case. un do case screws, remove clutch cable, the clutch should have a series of plates and are held in a basket with a big nut in the centre holding it on to the crank, remove nut and it all should slide off towards you. replace plates and replace every thing in the reverse order, when done make sure that there is 1/4 inch of play in the adjustment of the clutch lever. This means when you pull in the clutch you should not feel any resistance for the first 1/4 clutch lever travel. also when trying to undo clutch centre nut, put the bike in gear and put a steel bar through the spokes of the wheel held against the swing arm to lock up the engine to undo the nut and tighten it.

Cant work out where clutch cable goes

Standard 10w30 or 10w40 motor oil goes in the gearbox. 2 stroke engine oil goes in the gas @ 4 ounces per gallon for a 32 to 1 mix ratio.

My bike has a very low pick up compared to other bikes.acceleration of the bike is not at all smooth.sound of the engine is also different from other pulsars.i replaced the clutch plates,but there is no...

service your carb, change the plug and airfilter and check you timing and compression.These are simple things that will improve your performance ...but changing your clutch plates?Is your clutch slipping?

The locations of both sets of points in a 1976

It has been a while... but I believe there is a round access cover about 2" in diameter on the right hand side of the bike, forward part of the engine.

That corresponds with the end of the exhaust camshaft. 9_11_2014_6_00_28_pm.jpg
In this photo, it is chrome plated. They are held on by two philips head machine screws.

The points themselves are mounted on two plates. The first plate adjusts both sets of points, the second adjusts the difference in the two sparks.


That said, you might be on a wild goose chase. Most of the older T120s and T140s have already been converted to Boyer electronic ignition systems. MUCH more reliable, and much less maintenance. Smoother, and more precise as well.

Boyer conversion or not, the access plate in in the same place. It just might be a "pointless" ignition.

See these guys - they have very good telephone support - and will have Boyer kits in stock.
