Help please advice on gear oil for RMX

Hi I have a 1996 RMX 250 i have rebuild the top end and plan to use it this Wednesday I also have taken off the RHS case to check the power valve linkage and really want to put new oil in. I have looked in every shop I can find where i live but no one has gear oil, but I have 5 ltrs of automatic transmission fluid in my garage, would it be OK to use that in my RMX gear box.

thanks

I use ATF in my 2t 'KTMs and EXC530 trans. The synthetic stuff works great.

I used ATF in 2 stroke transmissions for years. I know lots of people that have also used ATF, never heard of a problem.

Shell Rotella

Rotella is great oil, Recluse recomends it with their clutches.
