I don't know why it double posted the pictures lol I took that side cover off because it was leaking. Is this where gear oil goes?
If you are talking about the transmission (gearbox) it uses/shares the motor oil which is filled at the oil cap on the clutch cover
gear oil is for rear end like in a car
you can edit your post for a few minutes to remove extra photos
or a moderator can edit out extra photos
Did you see my picture of the cover where the shifter is? That is the one that was leaking. Is that the oil from the engine or gear oil from the final drive?
that is engine oil . the motor is a one piece unit with the gears inside the motor case uses same sump to supply oil to both sections
look at this thread for a better understanding of the internals of motor

Oh okay thanks for your help everyone on here are always so helpful
I just have one more question when you guys said 80w hypnoid gear oil all I have been seeing is 80-90 is that right?
yes that works too.
and to be clear IT does not go in motor just rear hub at axle
Lol yeah I know I have changed my oil a few times just haven't done anything with the rear drive gear oil.
I figured that . I sometimes forget that I am not talking to someone but writing things and that is to people with different skill sets and terminology of bike parts.
I just did it in another post about red warning light forgot about the Atari red warning light and focused on oil light. I just fixed my oil light had to high of a wattage bulb and poor contacrt.
I have a Atari cluster on my 82 750 maxim
just like the oil plug on top (but it is not on top just the highest plug) and you saw the vent on top I must be careful not to misdirect and cause people problems
Yeah lol I have been thinking about getting rid of my atari but I don't know if I want to try that yet lol
I still have and use my original Nintendo deck ......… oh we were talking about speedo tach clusters
As an occasional (unfortunately) long-distance rider, I can vouch for the ATARI being a useful device. Even been riding along oblivious of the obvious? Just enjoying the day? Maybe a bit too far from a gas station, and on reserve?
Ya...warnings help avoid that problem.
Yeah I would agree however I need to figure out why my fuel gauge isn't working. Any idea?
Are the wires hooked up to the sending unit under the tank ?
"sending unit in tank may be bad
The plug for the sending unit is under the seat. Easy to check. White flat plug with two wires coming from directly under the fuel tank.
Fairly often when I do maintenance that requires that the tank be lifted or removed, I forget to plug it back in.
My low fuel light never worked till i pulled the tank for paint, removed the sender and found the little wire inside broken at the solder point. Resolder, fixed! May be that simple.
I haven't been able to check yet. However I rode to work today and on the way home when I turn a corner my bike just died. It started right back up. And did it again when I turned into my driveway and started right up any ideas?
