What tranny oil is good?

I am looking to change the oil in my tranny. The book says to use a HD product. But what is strange is I looked at that oil in my accessories catalog and it never said a weight. So what is the actual reccomended weight for a 6 speed circa 2008?

I never saw a wild thing feel sorry for itself.--DH Lawerence

You'll get many different opinions on this. But I would say most on here including myself run Redline Shockproof trans fluid. You can get it at any cycle gear store.

Redline Shockproof is great and Cycle Gear runs sales on it often.

This is what I use. It really makes a difference in the shifting.

The link Pat included is the right stuff. You can also try racerpartswholesale.com they are a little cheaper.

Another Redline with shock proof here , second choice is Bel Ray

FWIW , and many don't know this , is viscosity ratings are different in the trans oil versus the motor oil , that's why the 75-140 in your transmission is "thinner" than the 20-50 used in the motor
