doesnt shift
« on: August 09, 2016, 01:32:37 PM »
Getting ready to start pulling engine covers on my 70xclh ,can't drain oil because drain plug has been covered up with a half ass patch,anyway figure oil will drain out when I pull covers on both sides,shifter does nothing and has a lot of play in casing,will need some help as I go along,also vent tuber has been hooped closed so oil comes out the speedo cable when the bike is running

What block head had that bike?
Hope you got it for a real low price.
Keep us posted on the fixes and any help you need.
Due to conservation the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.
