Final Drive Oil Change

Post by RoadWarrior » Sun May 13, 2018 2:52 pm

I was speaking with someone yesterday and discussing motorcycle oil change. I mentioned how often I perform an engine oil change and the final drive oil change. He was very surprised that you needed to change the final drive, he had never did it! :shock: :shock: :shock:

In my opinion, you change them both at the same time!

I thought I would post the link to Bareass Chopper's procedure and video. It is well done and demonstrates how simple it really is to do!

Here is the video....Enjoy

I always empty it when on the kickstand for the angle of draining, when drained, I roll it forward and let drain again a couple times to get all residual oil. I then put the bikejack under it to level it out and fill. :)

Hammer to Bammer, that` exactly how I drain and refill mine.

Must work ok as mine has 112,000 in the rear end and no slop at all .
