Can you mix engine oil with gear oil?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

just completed (or almost completed) and engine and gear oil change. I came up short on the gear oil (but not a great deal I imagine), and was wondering if I could make up the difference with engine oil?

After speaking with some KTM mechanics, they say that there is no problem with running engine oil in BOTH the engine and gearbox. I intend on doing this, but was looking to use up the last of my gear oil prior.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Josh

Sorry guys, I though my bike details would come up automatically..

I've got a '08 KTM 530. I am running Motorex Formula 4T engine oil and Motorex 10/30 gear oil. Just need to know if I can make up the difference of my gearbox oil with engine oil!

Thanks again,

Josh

I have the same bike and run engine oil in both.Also i change the gear oil every other oil change since it seems to never get dirty.
