Re: gear oil

Hi,
Cinq gearbox's seem to work best on semi synthetic gear oil, the best apparently is Castrol Syntrax gear oil, but that is only available in 1L bottles and at Ģ10 each (you need 3), it gets a bit expensive. I put Coma SX75 semi synthetic gear oil in my 899cc and it works great, and its only Ģ12 for 5L, but the general point of view is Castrol Syntrax is the one to have....

ps. Have you adjusted your clutch cable recently....?

Thanks
Paul T

Talking Re: gear oil

i have found "Slick50" gearbox additive helped make things a bit quieter in the gearbox area,
