2000 kx250 transmission oil

Drained it and filled t with autozone 10w30 motor oil. Is this the wrong stuff? Should I have used type f atf?

Car oil is never a good thing in a wet clutch gear case. Sometimes you get away with it, sometimes your clutch goes to slipping. Kinda like Dirty Harry puts it, "do you feel lucky?".

I'd drain it and fill it with ATF. Then ride it around a minute and drain it and fill it with ATF again. Probably be alright then.

What type of atf isn't there a lot of different kinds

It either slips or it don't. I have used many varieties of car oil and have not had an issue on my two stroke transmissions.

Buy the cheapest one - usually MD-3. Some like type F but it's more money.

I use 10W30 and I've never had an issue either.  Going on over 40 years w/ a 2T....never used ATF.

Thank you

You can't go wrong with what the manual specifies.

I get whatever wally world has, for under $20/gal. Usually Valvoline. Use it in every 2t trans I own...never a problem. Trans oil preference is like premix, tires, terrain, technique, etc. Ask 100 people the same question...expect a 100 different answers.

Rotella or mobile 1 for auto oils. Or ATF or a moto specific for 2 stroke trans. Currently running Royal Purple Syncromax and am happy with it.
