Default final drive oil question

hello all. Just wondering what oil to use in the final drive. I know its supposed to be GL-5 90w oil which i used, but what is "hypoid" oil? is there much of a difference if the container doesnt say hypoid? thanks

Hi,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear_oil

Hypoid has special additives for extreme pressure and friction.

FWIW, I use Castrol 70w-90w synthetic gear oil in my bike, the final drive and the secondary gears.


Thank you for your indgulgence,

BassCliff
