I've been running Golden Spectro 85wt gear oil in my tranny for the past two years. Never any problems. I am hearing from friends that I can run just plain brand gear oil, and even a heavy wt motor oil (like 20w50). Anyone do this? I am more interested in keeping my bike in prime working order than in saving a buck.
Well when I rode strokers I always used ATF.
It's cheap, lets the clutch disengage cleanly, and Is effective at gear protection.
As it's inexpensive, I dropped it regularly to keep it fresh.
Only 750 ml. That's right, Only 750 ml. So chuck it often.
My TTR only has 1300 ml, I drop it every two rides. And I use a good semi synth (Rock oil 10/40)
