Gear / Final Drive oil same ?

Have looked in the FAQ but cannot find any confirmation that the same oil is used when changing the transmission i.e. gear oil and the final drive oil.

I want to use this one http://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=39064

Thanks in advance for any confirmation about this.

That's what I do. Same oil in the tranny and final drive.

Yes, my local dealer has it.

I was using the ad to show the product.

Thanks
