Trans fluid and primary fluid are the same oil , The drain plug is under the laft side primary cover. 1 qt of oil goes in the inspection cover on the top side of the primary cover. The oil drain is a hose under the left side by the frame rail. Look for a oil line with a plug. fill with approx 3 qts through the oil tank. Make sure you get the bike up to operating temp before dropping the fluid.

When starting, clutch down 1st gear turning key truck jumps forward, will start but need to be ready to take off in gear that started in. starts fine in neutral.but won't go into gear without grinding


1st check your clutch system, that is most probably where the issue is as the gearbox rarely ever gives issues

2nd check the oil for your gear box. the oil should help the gears as they move into action or move out.

The automatic transmission is bloked in 2nd


IS your automatic broken or will only go into 2nd gear .
Will it go into reverse gear or does it start off in 1st and then into 2nd and no other gears .
IT sounds like either the box is low in oil or the forward pump in the bottom of the box isent getting enough oil because of the filter on the pick up isent letting enough oil through and so the pump wont change the bands to 3rd and 4th gear so the first thing to do is to check the oil in the auto box 2nd thing is if low oil is to take off the pan on auto box and clean filter and check the pick up pipe,3rd thing is to check the forward band and if the oil is dark brown then the problem is burnt drive band and then thats a job for the auto box shop..
But check it out and let me know how you get on . Ron

Gear oil instantly came out , put new gear oil there was no problem to drive , kindly tell me why it happened


is it the gear oils from the bottom or hood? either way, check for leakages or probably the cap for the gear oil wasn't properly set. which is why it spilled for the 1st tym but the 2nd after changing it, you tightened it of course causing it to do well.

BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard


hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

Engaging 1st gear the gear grinds an clunks into


Often the transmission will clunk when first starting up and shifting into 1st. gear. To help alleviate this, hold the clutch lever in for thirty seconds or so before making that first shift into gear. This should make shifting into first much quieter.
This situation occurs on most of the FJRs, even when new.

04 Sportster 883 gearbox Clunk.


Big Twins clunk too, especially into 1st with a cold motor, even if you free the clutch off first. When I remember, I snick it into gear, pull in the clutch and roll it back and forward to free off the plates. And it still clunks. Sometimes, you will slip from neutral into 1st, almost with no effort, and no clunk and so smooth you don't believe it's engaged (but it is). Weird. I have smooth changes from 4th to 5th and back again, sometimes from 3rd to 4th, but 3rd to second and second to 1st are always a BIG clunk, even if you give it some stick to try and match the revs before changing down. I now go from second to neutral and then into 1st, which is not a lot of fun when you are negotiating a hairpin on Glenquaich at the time... A tighter primary chain seems to reduce the clunk, and there are those who say that auto primary adjusters/tensioners (does a Sporty have one of them?) reduce the clunk. Some disagree... Assume you find it's much better when it's hot..
