Run rotella in the transmission. It is inexpensive and works just fine! One positive is that it is about ten dollars a gallon compared to some of the transmission oils that cost as much as ten dollars a quart.

I've ran the Honda gear oil (red bottle) for years without a problem. I also use their HP2 2-stroke oil at 32:1. Pretty sure I read some where not to use 927 in the cold so, in Canada, I'd only use it during the warmer seasons.

Rotella, good stuff. I've had sucess running spectro synsno snomachine oil believe it or not. I knew a spectro rep, same stuff as the $8 pints and for $40 for a gallon more betterer in the pocket book. I run 927 when it's warm.

CR500's RULE

Yeah, I was surprised when I heard that 927 is better than synthetics for high temperature situations. And since I live in Arizona and have an air cooled bike... :smirk:

:lol:

I really lucked out. My wife loves to ride! :smirk: We worked it out so that my son and I take care of the bike maintenance while she does other things...

She rode Big Red once (the CR250) and said it was like riding a dragon! I love this woman! :smirk:

Of course, she also said she doesn't understand why other women don't ride, since they'll never get this much power between their legs any other way... :prof:

sounds like youve been using gear oil for some time so you would be the best judge wether it works or not. have your plates burned ? most dealers dont know their head from ass :smirk:
