SOURCE: what is the shift pattern on a 2005 vrod

How in the world did you end up with a motorcycle and you don't know how to shift it?

Standard shift pattern is down one, then up one click at a time to the top gear using the toe of your left foot. Down shift by tapping down, each tap goes down one gear through the neutral space to first. Neutral is down one up one. A neutral light should come on to indicate you are not in a gear. NEVER PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN THAT LIGHT.

My friend, may I suggest you seek out and take the Basic Rider Course from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation before you go any further. It will not only teach you the basic operation of your motorcycle, which will help you obtain your driver license, it will also earn you a discount on your insurance. While it will not guarantee you a safe ride, it will give you the tools you need to be a safe and responsible rider.

Contact motorcycle dealers in your area to find out where you can take the BRC. Or, you can check here:

Please don't ride your motorcycle until you understand how it works and you get the skills necessary to safely operate it.

Thank you

Thank you for your interest in

SOURCE: oil leaking from the back of primary case

There are several things behind the inner primary case that could be leaking. There is a seal behind the inner primary where the transmission mainshaft goes into the primary. This seal sometimes starts to leak. Also, there are seals in the transmission in that area. The final drive gear seal is the big seal right behind the front final drive belt pulley. Somethimes this pulley wears on the splines of the final drive gear and it loses tension on the "quad seal" on the final drive gearshaft.

You'll nee some special tools to get to this area. You'll need sockets to fit the compensator sprocket nut and the clucth nut. You'll need an airwrench, a primary locking bar, and a torque wrench that will pull 150-165 ft. lbs. torque in forward direction, 68-80 ft. lbs. LEFT-HANDED on the clutch nut, a primary locking bar, a final drive sprocket locking device, a mainshaft nut removal tool, and some seal pullers and installers. Good Luck.
