Final Drive Lube

Need help. I am trying to find the U.S. version of "Castrol Syntrax Long Life 75w-90". This has replaced Castrol SAF X0. Or maybe someone has a great replacement of the Castol oil. The dealer can get me a quart of it, at a price of $47.99. Little salty!!! Any help would be great.

I've used Mobile 1: Synthetic Gear Oil 75W-90 in my last two BMW final drives. Available at autozone.

Sweet, any issues? Dealer pushes the castrol and tries to make it seem like the bike will blow up with other oils.....
