Question about Yamaha XS 650 E Motorcycles
Do not use synthetic lubricants in your bike. Some of them can mess up the clutch. Some will swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to grab and not disengage the engine. Some others will shrink the cork and cause the clutch to not engage at all. If there is oil in the crankcase, don't worry about any wear on the shifter. In 40 years I have yet to see a worn shift drum. Plenty of bent shift forks but never a worn shift drum. Try tightening the case screws to stop the oil leak. Be sure the oil level is not too high. A high oil level can cause a bit of oil to leak from the crankcase vent tube. That may be where your leak is coming from. Just use 10w40 motor oil with no "special" additives. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
