  • Gear oil specs

    2000 xv1600at, 50+k miles - Thinking of changing my gear oil out (never have), not finding the specified Yamalube anywhere. Sites? Other brands that meet spec? Additional insights? You guys rock.

      Any GL 4

        I bought this at NAPA. It is rated GL-4. Lots of guys here use GL-5 synthetic gear oil. I don't know if one is better than the other and it would take some pretty intensive testing to determine which oil is best.

            It might not matter - the weep screw is covered up by the aftermarket pipes...gonna have to stare at it tomorrow morning after it cools down.

              When looking into the fill hole you will see the chain and front sprocket. The correct oil level will be, oil covering the chain on the lower side of that sprocket. So you really don't have to remove the oil level weep screw.

              I was going to remove my rear pipe to access the weep hole. I want to try the peek method first now!

                Duke, thanks for the peek vs. weep tip! (did that sound weird?)
