What happens if you put 90w in the transmission but haven't replaced the mainshaft bearing with the sealed set? Replacing the bearing with a sealed unit is something I'd like to do, but I'm hoping to ride for the season before tearing into the transmission, but I don't want to ride it if the oil is going to leak everywhere... What's the word?
On the 4-spd? Never. Adding them is a home remedy.5spds are built to run in oil.
Well that's good news for me! So did the 5-speeds tool out with grease or 90w?
Is there a quick way to tell if the P.O. did the bearing already? I'd feel pretty dumb if I got the kit and it turned out it was done. I ask because the stuff in the box came out as a thick liquid, not as a grease...
What page in Pete's book goes over this stuff? He says "see chapter 9" but then I couldn't find anything specific in chapter 9. A page number/heading name would be a big help.
And how do you know when there's enough in there?
I just wasn't sure how much of a liquid this was going to be.... The idea is the grease is viscous enough to not come out of the bearing, so I wasn't sure if it was viscous enough to not really pour evenly, and so maybe it would be easy to overfill or under-fill, depending on how the grease fills the box, and when it starts to leave the hole. I take it if I heat it up, it won't be an issue?Sorry, my only experience with grease is from a grease gun, and that doesn't pour at all...
I use 30cc syringes to inject grease into the gearbox, works great!Geichal
Do you warm it in a spoon first?
