    I know there was a lot of talk about final shaft oil!
    Just want to know, if anyone using this oil, for final shaft as liqui moly suggest 75w-90, some members use diferent liqui moli 80w gear oil!

    Yes, I prefer a higher viscosity and I chosen GL5.

    I have read an article about GL4 and GL5 oils and my doubts return. GL5 due to its high sulfur and phosphorous content attack metals such as bronze and other soft metals, does anyone know what materials the CT final shaft is made of?

    note: honda does not specify whether to use GL4 or GL5.

    That’s only an issue for bronze bushes that are found in older motorbike gearboxes and final drives.
