Just brought a new 250 2t today, and was wondering if I could use my 4t oil in it?

KTM say 15-50w and the oil I have is 10-60w, surely it must be ok, be nice if it was as I've got over 20litres of it and its motox fully synthetic!

Hi

KTM don't re-commend fully synthetic because its not good for the clutch.

The 15/50 oil that they recommend is 4 stroke oil, but part synthetic.

Top Speed 15w50 is 90% synthetic, Cross Power 10w60 is 100% fully synthetic. Neither will give you any clutch problems.

I've jsut bought Silkolene Gear Oil to change my bike oil....it was £8.20
Says 'for use in 2T and other seperate gear box machines. SAE 75W-80, crankcase rating SAE 10W40'

Would 10W-40 be ok for transmission oil on a 2T? I've got a bit left over from my road bike
