Transmission oil for winter

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I ride in Houston (K1200RS 2003) and during summer my gear box works great (preloading technique etc) and only low clicks when I change gears.
Now we get into colder weather and in the morning I start experiencing again the clunks. Does anyone have similar experience?
Will going to a lower SAE oil in the gearbox help? I am using 75/140 now

That is really such a useful information. I think people also get the know it through this forum. And This is the best way to spread out the information.
Thank you.
