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.

Hello there, my name is Mike. Our 04 Sedona has 98000 mi and the transmission started to slip. The manual sugests transmission oil change at 105000 mi. When I do the oil change should I add just the...


hi mike this is best just to add the normal transmission fluid, i am not putting slick 50 down i use it myself in engines, but although it has a additive for the transmission it will be like adding 2 different oils in the transmission , which it wont like, but after saying that ( ime sure some people will say what the heck lol ) slick 50 is a good preservative for moving parts, but really i personally do not use it in transmissions, just a hint as well if you did not know this already, when topping up the oil in the trans, make sure the vehicle is on idle when checking it....hope this sorta helps ya, but preference is down to you the customer
