I use the GN4 black bottle, red cap. I think its 20-40 or 10-40.... i can't remember. I use it in both sides, engine and tranny. Never had a problem, and I don't have to buy more than one type of oil.

Whatever is laying around in the garage. I think it was some generic 10w40 last time. I just change my oil every 3-5 rides with whatever is laying around the house. I've always done this and never had a trans failure in over 12 years of MX.

What about ATF?

Anyone?

Kelstr likes ATF for the CRF trans, and I put a lot of value in his advice :naughty: . BTW, he also likes Pro Honda Trans Oil which is what I run.

ATF certainly makes a good tranny oil, even Amsoil reccomends their synthetic ATF for manual transmissions...

I am still sticking to the Shell Rotella T 15w40 in mine using 850cc of it. If I use the factory spec oil amount...I miss lots of shifts from second to third. With 850cc those are a thing of the past.

I think alot of the notchy shifting some people experience is due to this....

My Husky doesn't have seperate gear/ engine oil. So for bikes like this that "share" you need to make sure the oil you use meets the "shear" strength requirements for the gear box.

My 2 cents

I use Safola...only $0.50 a quart, and smells like french fries. Only problem is that I gotta carry a stick with me to keep the little fat kids away... :naughty:
