Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Posted by Anonymous on
" Top of final gear ", If you mean the output sprocket then the oil seal needs to be replaced. Not a big deal to do. If the knob you refer to is on top of the gearbox then you probably are referring to the crankcase breather tube. A bit of oil here is normal especially as a bike gets older. Blow-by from the cylinders goes into the crankcase and the out the breather tube. The only way to stop the oil is to bore the cylinders and put in new pistons and rings.

buy oil and filter from your dealer, they will know what you need, yes drain it, change filter and re-fill. job done, dont pay to get it done it's so simple and you will save about $85

On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.

80w-90 hypoid gear oil. A synthetic oil will cause less friction and less heat build up in the rear end , extending the life of an expensive part

You can use it if it is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil but if you drive your cycle in warm weather the thin oil will burn off the cylinder walls. In other words keep an eye on the oil level or you may find yourself a quart low. It is not worth the minor horse power increase of thin oil to risk running low on oil in hot weather. If your driving in Canada or Norway in winter it should work great.
