All 1150 and 1100 GS bikes had a drain and fill plug on the final drive. The R1200GS did not come with a fill plug and the drain plug was located on the rear of the final drive on the early machines. It has since been relocated to the bottom of the housing on later models.

Where to changer or check gear oil on 2002 vstar classis 650

The gear oil is the final drive oil - on the back wheel it's the hub assembly that the drive shaft ties into. There's a bolt at the top of it for filling and one at the bottom to drain. You should drive the bike a little to warm the oil, then you can drain the oil through that lower plug. I usually open the filler one on top while draining and I pour some fresh gear oil in to kind of flush it. Then install and tighten the drain plug. Fill with fresh oil right to the top of the filler plug. Some drain plugs are magnetic to pickup metal debris (normal) so clean that off when you have it out.

Where is the drain plug for final drive on 2003 superglide

There is no "final drive" on a Harley like there is on some of the Japanese bikes. The primary drive has a drain plug underneath the back side near the derby cover. It is a small pipe plug type plug. The transmission drain, I think as I don't work on the later model bikes, is the small pipe plug on the front of the oil pan on the bottom of the transmission.

Good Luck

In M/T of Mitsubishi Lancer Model 2001/2002 where is the fluid filter? Is there a M/T fluid filter for these models?

If you are talking about a Manual Transmission/transaxle then there is no filter. Because a manual trans is not pressure lubercated there is no need for one. What you will find is a fill and drain plugs they will most likely have a magnet on the end to catch metal fragments. All that needs to be done is to drain the fluid, clean off the plugs and refill the trans with clean fluid until it is at the bottom of the drain plug( weeping out of the hole is where most mechainic fill it to) and finally to tight the plugs.

Gear oil is leaking from the seal in rear drive behind the wheel is this difficult to repar

While it is not difficult to replace the seal, this usually indicates that the main bearing in the final drive has failed and pushed out/damaged the seal causing the leak.

Put bike on center stand and hold rear wheel with both hands and 12 and 6 O'clock positions. Try to move wheel by pushing towards the side of the bike in each direction. If wheel moves more than 1-2mm then you need to have final drive repaired. You can also remove drain plug at the bottom of the final drive and see if any metal particles drain out with the oil. Use a small drain pan to catch the oil.

Sorry, but likely not an easy seal replacement to fix this problem.

Where is the radiator drain plug located?

After searching for 30 minutes under and behind it we finally looked in front of the radiator and saw a white nylon plug on the drivers side. Turns out that it is was the drain plug that you can remove with an allen wrench. Hope this helps.
