Question about 1985 Honda VT 500 C Shadow
Open the tappet cover on the side of the final drive. Place a pan under the final drive and a rag over the wheel. Open the small bolt on the bottom of the final drive and let it drain. Do not lose the sealing washer. When empty put the lower plug back in and snug just enough so it will not leak or come out (do not over tighten!).Using 80/90 Hypoid gear oil (preferably synthetic it will run cooler, less friction) fill the final drive to the bottom of the tappet cover hole and put the tappet cover back on with o-ring . Again snug it up but do not over tighten , it only needs to seal in the oil and it is designed to break if you put it on to tight.
