Couple Questions

3 posts in this topic

After not finding the answer in my manual, Does my 2000 xr650r have tranny fluid? From what i have gathered the motor oil is also used in the transmission, unlike a crf450x. Also i am tired of buying lots of honda oil. How many guys use Rottella oil? Is the rottella used in diesels or what it called? Thanks for answering my dumb questions.

Yes it runs tranny / clutch and engine all in the same oil, hence the frequent

oil change schedule.

I use Rotella T Synthetic. It's obtainable at Walmart. My bike runs cooler

and quiter on it than with any of the other oils I've tried. It is a bit high

in ash (turns dark pretty quick) but at 600 to 800 miles between oil changes

it's no problem.

My next favourite oil was / is Motul. It performs as well as the Rotella, but

costs quite a lot. I don't belive in throwing cheap oil into my pig, it works

hard, I ride it every day. :cheers:
