it works great. Just have to make sure it doesnt have the moly crap in it or else the clutches will slip.

Google Rotella and you will see how many use it in bkes, and it is diesel synthetic. I think $19 at wally world. Changed mine and my dads used rotella in both.

They sell 5-40 at my walmart. I live in Maine and everyone says 10-40. With the colder climate should I be all set?

Unfortunetly Rotella doen't have a 10-40 syn, but 5-40 works just fine.
