What type of oil do I use in the drive shaft of my 1994 honda shadow 1100. I have heard 90w, but have read on here to use other oils. What would be the best.


The final drive should use 80/90 hypoid gear oil for the worm gears. If you would like the final drive to run cooler (less friction) use synthetic hypoid gear oil. Use synthetic 80/90 hypoid gear oil and change it every other motor oil change.

Have 10000 miles on my bike does the shaft drive oil need to be changed or what?


Final drive assemblies on motorcycles generally cost over $1000. They tend to show signs of dirt after only 5000 miles. Having driven shaft drive motor cycles for over 30 years I usually change my 85/90 Hypoid gear oil at every second engine oil change. It is never very dirty but if taken into the sun light will show some fine metal chips (nothing to worry about). I highly recommend using synthetic Hypoid gear oil. It will cause less friction and the final drive will run at a much cooler temperature. One quart of Hypoid gear oil will change the rear end oil 3 or 4 times so it is good, cheap preventive maintenance. Simply take off the large fill cap, place a pan under the small drain bolt at the bottom of the pan,remove the drain bolt, drain the oil, put the drain bolt back in, and fill the final drive to the bottom of the larger fill hole (usually a quarter to half cup of oil), then replace the large cap being careful to only snug it tight enough to seal in the oil. If you over tighten it, it is designed to break! Be sure to check the owners manual on the exact amount of oil to use. Honda has changed the fill technique for some of the newer models. With a higher fill hole on some newer models you may be over filling the final drive, so you may have to measure the amount. Too much oil will cause waste and may cause over flow out the top vent. Happy Trails.

What is the weight of the final gear oil for the suzuki boulevard M50? Is it 20W-50 gear oil?


NOOOO! Do not put 20w-40w in the final drive!!!

This bike has hypoid gears (beveled gears that create a sliding action across the teeth and therefore energy loss and a lot of heat). A 20W-40W oil will destroy those gears, it can't handle the high friction in the final drive.

You need an SAE90 Hypoid gear oil with a GL-5 rating as defined by the API (American Petrolium Institute) classification system. If you operate your bike in temperatures less than 32 degrees F (0 degrees C), you will need to use SAE80 GL-5 Hypoid gear oil.

Final drive has noise coming from it and gear box


i have one of these,check the oil level in the final drive and the colour,replace with good quality 80-90 gear oil,if the noise doesnt go away you may find that one of the bearings in the final drive is worn,often what happens on these bikes is that because the final drive is virtually maint free people dont change the oil and the oil becomes contaminated with particles from the crownwheel,pinion,and bearings and the bearings will evetually fail,i change the final drive oil on mine every time i do the engine oil change and after125000km is still dead quiet

Changing the final drive oil on a 2006 r 1200 gs


I use a turkey baster and about six inches of fuel line. Put the fuel line into the final drive, then squeeze the bulb of the turkey baster and then put then protruding end of the hose against the end of the baster and **** the oil out of there. The final drive only holds a pint or so. My old K bike had an allen head drain plug, I guess the newer final drives have been "upgraded".
