Hi, Nick JB Weld is OK for certain applications, in this case, it's just a band-aid. I recommend you take it to a professional welder and have him repair it.

Drain oil. Use degreaser to clean area. Use JB Weld & allow to set up properly before adding oil.

hi mate take it to a descent welder who can weld aluminium and when welded fill it back up with light gear oil and also the bike will start with no oil but if ran too long the gearbox will seize and will cost you a engine rebuild normally 300 pounds ++ so get it sorted asap good luck

How do i change the oil?


Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.

I have a08 ktm 450sxf i am pullin the motor but the bolts wont come all the way out only about 3/4 of the way. Is there a certain way out is there a certain way to remove them?


Hi mate sorry to say KTM's are just awkward, if you mean the engine mount bolts ??? then I have noticed this also is a drama last few I have removed motor I had to wiggle and adjust the motor until everything was all perfectly squared up or they just wont slip all the way out. Persistance and swearing helps a lot but basically just need to support the motor in perfect position at same time as pulling out the bolts. They do come out easy when you find the motors favourite position. cheers mate www.motoxpartsonline.com

HOW TO CHANGE OIL PAN ON F150


Hi. Here's the procedure on how to change the oil pan.

Things You'll Need:
Drain pan
Crescent wrench
New oil filter
Oil filter wrench
Socket wrench
Socket set
Razor knife
Putty knife
New oil pan
Oil pan gasket
6 qt. of oil
Clean towel

    Draining the Oil
  1. 1 Locate the oil pan directly underneath the engine. The oil pan will be held on to the bottom of the motor by 16 to 18 bolts. The drain plug is at the bottom of the pan.
  2. 2 Loosen the drain plug with a crescent wrench. Allow all the oil to drain in to the pan. Tighten the drain plug when the oil is through draining.
  3. 3 Unscrew the oil filter with an oil filter wrench. Place the oil filter with the waste oil.
  4. 4 Rub new motor oil around the gasket of the new oil filter. Pour 1 qt. of oil in to the filter.
  5. 5 Screw the filter to the filter housing with your hands. Do not wrench-tighten as this will strip the threads and make removal of the filter difficult.
  6. Replacing the Oil Pan
  7. 1 Locate all the bolts holding the oil pan in place. There will be 16 to 18 bolts.
  8. 2 Unscrew all the bolts with a socket wrench. Lower the pan to the ground. If the pan is stubborn, tap it with a rubber mallet to loosen the seal from the gasket.
  9. 3 Scrape clean all the gasket material around the bottom surface of the motor. This will ensure a tight seal with the new oil pan.
  10. 4 Place the new gasket around the new oil pan. Raise the oil pan to the motor and screw in all the bolts. Do not tighten the bolts until all are threaded to the bottom of the motor.
  11. 5 Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench. Ensure that all the bolts are tight.
  12. Adding the New Motor Oil
  13. 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil filler cap on top of the crankcase. Pull the engine oil dipstick from the tube. Wipe the dipstick clean with a fresh towel.
  14. 2 Pour in 5 qt. of oil in to the engine crank case. Insert the dipstick back in to the tube and pull it back out. Check the oil level against the markings on the dipstick. Fill at 1/2 qt. intervals until the dipstick indicates "Full."
  15. 3 Start the truck and allow it to run for five minutes. Allow the truck to sit for an additional five minutes to allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan.
  16. 4 Check the oil level again. Fill if necessary, but do not overfill.

How to change oil 1978 goldwing gl1000


Get 4 quarts of JASO MA certified motor oil. I recommend synthetic , it will shift better when hot. Amsoil is a good choice. Place an oil pan under the front of the motor. Use a 6 point socket to loosen the bolt on the round finned oil filter cover on the front right corner of the motor and spin it off.Take the oil filter out of the cover and make sure you save the washer that will stick to the rubber seal. Pull bolt out of cover and replace o-ring. put bolt back thru cover, first slide on spring,then washer,and then filter and spin back onto motor pressing filter against engine case. Snug bolt but do not over tighten. Now remove bolt in the middle of the front/bottom of motor(large one in middle , NOT small one under water pump). Check aluminum washer,if bad replace.After oil has drained put bolt back in , do not over tighten.Take off fill plug on right rear corner of motor(by final drive shaft) Using a funnel pour in 4 quarts oil (3.9 is correct amount, 1/10th quart does not seem to bother anything). Put plug back in , start up, and check for leaks.

How many ozs of shaft drive gear oil for a 2005 honda vtx r motorcycle 1300


hi,not a hard job to do,take the bike for a ride to warm the oil up before you drain it,it makes it a lot easier draining the oil as cold diff oil is quite thick and the hondas only have a small drain hole,get the bke sitting level i normally use a small car jack under each side of the bike just to hold it level,undo the lower drain bolt(about a 10 or 12mm from memory)drain all the oil out into a clean container,inspect the oil for any shiny bits,you shouldnt see any foreign bits on a bike this age though,if you do get the bike looked at straight away,there are a lot of bits and pieces inside that diff and they are very expensive to repair,once you have drained all the oil out replace the drain plug making sure it is tight(but dont strip the thread by over tightening it)undo the filler bolt(large plug type bolt above the drain plug)and fill with a good gear oil(from memory honda use a 80/90w oil)fill the diff to the bottom of the filler plug just untill the oil starts to dribble out of the filler hole,this is the correct level and i think from memory they hold about 280-300mls,a 1 litre bottle does 3 changes..dont forget to put the filler plug back in and tighten it...hope this helps...cheers ian
