Sorry if this has been covered before but I am very new to trials bikes and 2 strokes. I live in New Zealand so some oils may not be available here. What trans oil do you guys recommend for a 2014 280. You thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Alan

Hi,

Here in Europe we use the brands Nils, ELF, Putoline and Motul. Oil for wet clutch plates from 75W. When I look at the specs of the Nils Clutch oil here it closely matches your brand of Penrite Gear Oil.

I second the use of 75w for trials. I put in 15w40 when I got my trials bike like I run in my other 2 stroke enduros and the clutch didn't work right. Put in 75w and all was good.
