Hey Oilman,

What do you recommend for gearbox oil on 2002 standard VTR. Done quite a bit mileage if that makes a difference? (120k)

Hi

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Gulf Formula G, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.

As a budget choice, a 10w-40 will be fine and I would either go for the Fuchs XTR or Motul 6100

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-657-10w-40.aspx

Use the code MAYOFFER for an extra 15% off.

Cheers

Tim

I won't duplicate the links etc, but the same as in my last post, 5w-40 or 10w-40.

Cheers

Tim

Not really. If you have the 10w-40, the Magnatec is okay, but a 5w-40 synthetic is better. If you have the 15w-40, it's a pretty basic oil.

Go for a 5w-40 synthetic

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Gulf Formula G, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.
