    Introduction

    This pictorial deals with the changing of the final drive fluid in the rear drive.

    The procedure is broken out into four stages:

    • The first stage is the preparatory work to get the bike to do a final drive fluid change.


    • The second stage is the rear drive fluid draining


    • The third stage is refilling


    • The fourth stage is the re-assembly

    Tools

    Aside from standard mechanics tools you will need:

    - T25
    - T40
    - T45
    - T50
    - 6mm Hex
    - Assorted 1/4" and 3/8" drive extensions
    - Torque wrench

    Bike Information:

    2009 KGT 1300, ABS/ASC

    The 2009 model rear drive does not require it to be "dropped" to change the fluid as there is a drain plug installed.

    Also on the 2009 Model the fluid is replaced thru the fill hole instead of the Speed Sensor



    oooo

    Stage One - Preparatory Stage

    The preparatory stage consists of:

    • Putting the bike on the centerstand on a flat stable surface. - not shown


    • Remove both saddlebags - not shown


    • Taking the muffler off


    • Taking the rear wheel off


    Once the rear wheel is off the decision path for either the fluid drain or the spline lube can be determined.

    Muffler Removal

    Using a T-25 Torx remove the shield covering the exhaust by the throttle-side foot peg.
