Post Question, 600 mile break in service.
I am at 500 miles, and I am ordering amsoil oil and fluids. I am getting conflicting info on the net. For 600 miles, do I put 10-40 oil in both the engine oil and final drive? Or do I put 75-90 gear lube in the final drive.

The dealership said to use engine oil in both reservoirs, but that seems wrong to me. I cant find this info from google.

2016 zuma 125.

I am planning on using amsoil full synthetic scooter 10-40 oil and amsoil synthetic gear lube super long life 75-90. Do I have to change both the engine oil + gear lube every 2k miles?

Lots of debate on this topic...

Specs say: 10w-40 for the engine for all weather. 10w-30 for the final drive (Which in gear oil specs is very similar to 75w-90). I've used everything from 10w-30, 75w-90, 10w-40 and even 15w-50 and saw no difference in the transmission.

Use any 10w-40 for the crankcase and use the reamining .20/quart in the transmission.

I do exactly as Dave stated. 10w40 synthetic in both. I do them both every 600 and still find a small amount of filings in the final drive. For 8 bucks and 15 min, is very cheap insurance.
