I am rebuilding the cylinder on my 2001 Yamaha 50cc Zuma and I realized that the final drive is leaking. So I ordered a new gasket set, but I am wondering two things. 1. Is there somewhere besides that huge gasket that it could be leaking from and 2. What is the oil changing procedure for the final drive (oil type, amount, etc...)
There's a filler plug on the primary gear side that is about 2/3 up from the bottom of the drive case, just rear of the axis of the primary gear. Fill it with gear oil (80, 80w90) until the level is at the filler hole. If you over fill it, let it run out until it stops. 2/3 full is full.
And yes, the gear oil can leak out of the gasket on the left side of the cvt, or on the driven gear side (that your rear wheel bolts to). If that were the case, your rear brake would get wet with gear oil, and you would have really bad rear brakes, and dirty grimy stuff on the rim/ right side of the rear wheel.
2008 Yamaha Morphous 250cc/72mpg 2001 Yamaha Zuma, Stage 6 69.5cc race cylinder, Molossi red torque spring with torsion control, Technigas Next R exhaust, 21mm Dellorto carb, 100 main jet, clutch engagement 6k rpm, variating @ 9300 rpm, tachometer, 55mph on level ground@10,500 rpm, 13/44 primary gear, and why don't they sell stiffer than stiffest clutch springs? 45 mpg
I took the cover off (largest cover on the bike) and I looked inside where the clutch is and there is no oil there. It appears (just got it running again) that it is leaking on the wheel side of the drive. How do I access/fix that?

marklorenzi: I just bought one of the Fleetwoods. They look like a clone of the Honda XRM's they sell overseas. It is in transit now and I should get it this week. I will try to post my experience here. Call me the guinea pig hahaha.
