Any final drive oil recommendations?

I have used redline on my old 97' RT. I did not know what K-bikes could use.

rear oil

i use that synthetic 70/140 gear oil from the dealer. it's as usual way too expensive, but i only use a small bit, so why shop to save money on something small like that? i'm sure wal mart has all brands of synthetic gear oil. good luck

One Qt. will do the final drive (230cc.) and the trans. (600cc.).
