I was reading thru the 'similar threads' below your post and the second listing has some pretty good info regarding tranny fluids. Hope that'll help.

Yes, I use Mobile 1 in both the transmission and the rear drive. One quart will change both.

Royal Purple synthetic in both gear box and final drive. Matches the bike!

I called a local BMW bike repair shop (non-dealer) -- was advised to use 75w-140 synthetic (wally world and auto zone carries it). I use it in the final drive and tranny.

Hope it helps.

I use the synth...Dan Martin advised I use different colors in the fd an d tranny to help id any future leak. That's what I did. Purple in the fd, not in the tranny.

+1 on the above.

This if there is a leak you at least know where to start looking...
