Transmission Fluid
« on: January 10, 2014, 04:23:50 AM »
I've noticed a lot of discussion regarding tranny fluids.  I can share what I've learned thus far: 1. Correct capacity is 450cc per Adrian at Lewisport. 2. The drain bolt under the shifter does not drain the whole gear case, I also remove the 7 o'clock bolt from the clutch cover - it's a small bolt and it takes a while but does drain out.  It obviously helps if the bike is warm.  3. I've tried Amsoil 75w-90 gear oil, Redline type F ATF and Maxima 0w-10 in the gear box with the ATF giving the best clutch "bite" and the least clutch drag but it must be changed often.  The Maxima is a close second place and seems to last longer between changes.  4.  This bike rips!!!

I'm happy with the PJ1 Clutch Tuner Ultralight oil I've been using.

Hi Just bitten the bullet and bought myself a 2014 TR300i (not ridden yet)

Want to give it a service etc. first.

Oil ive ordered for the transmission is......Fully Synthetic Millers EE 75w90 Nanodrive .

               Will the above be OK to try ?????

               Cheers, Craig.

I've only used the full synth maxima that Adrian mentioned.

270 hours and going strong.
