Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

Either 10W40 or 20W50.
I used a good synthetic motorcylce oil but if you want to use regular oil thats ok as long as you change it at its normal time.
