Since this bike is built based on the FJR, does that mean we use the same Final drive oil as the FJR? It is triple the cost then the regular Yamalube final drive oil.

I was at the Yamaha dealer and the front desk person in parts thought I should use the FJR final drive. But I had him ask the Mechanic in back and the mechanic told him to use the regular Yamalube final drive not the FJR type.

I bought the regular but now I am worried a little if that is correct. Yes we all were looking at the manual and the regular meets all the specs. But I want to make sure. My pockets aren't that deep to support a final drive blow up or problem.

Can someone let me know what one is the right one to use?

Thanks,

Brent

Hi Brent ... I always use the regular Yamalube Lubricant FRICTION MODIFIED SHAFT DRIVE GEAR OIL, SAE 80W-90, API SERVICE GL-4, GL-5 and change it every time I change engine oil.
Cheers,
Roberto

I thought it was only the FJR and V Max that took the high test stuff.

I've just been using hypoid 80-90 (I think) in the rear.

I like to think of it as an external roll cage as opposed to and exo-skeleton. But I am looking at the swing thing for a bit of off saddle recreation.

Tomato, tomaato.

I'm also working on a "external roll cage" to mount the bash plate without using
a motor mount. It's kinda taken on a life of it's own, but it's almost done.



Also if you Brit swingers come to Utah looking for "off saddle recreation" they'll
run you right out of the state.

Seems like what it's coming to! There must be a point when a giant roll cage becomes something that may increase the likelyhood of a crash.

I'm hangin' in there with my stock plastic guards.

Harrrrrrrrrrrr. That's a hoot. Kinda an interesting commentary on extreme farklers. The obsessively "safe" too.

Eee gads. You don't admit that in a public forum dedicated to bolting anti artillery
armor to the bottom of the bike.

Yep, the RideOnADV piece is akin to tank armor.

No doubt. If my Altrider ends up like the OEM it will be my next try.
