I was expecting the usual oil battle, but no replies yet - wtf ?

My personal answer would be NOT to use Motul transoil 10W30 (which is the YAMAHA spec for the RDs).

I always used Bel Ray MC-4 and tried the above Motul. Immediate reaction: clutch not fully separating and hard to shift. Changing with MC4 again and it was fine.
Unfortunately they don't sell it anymore, but the current BelRay GearSaver Transoil does the same job.

Spectro Golden Gear Lube, SAE 80. Excellent clutch feel (engagement and release) and smooth shift action. Quality goes in the bottle, not into advertising or dealer profit. Try it after using Bel Ray or Motul and see what you think - should be a noticeable difference.

Looks like I will have to go with Bel Ray or Motul. Nobody stocks Spectro SAE 80 anywhere in OZ. :smt013

I use Amsoil Severe Gear 75/90 in my bikes. Have used for for many years. Great performances and no issues. Will keep using it as long as I own motorcycles.
