I've got my supplies to do my an oil change but, I read the maintenance table and it states to change the transfer case oil. Uhhhh.... How and what do I put in it? This is the first air-cooled twin I've owned and I've never had to do any transfer case maintenance. :confused:

The book states gl4 but I put synthetic gl5 in mine. It only holds a shade over a half qt.I used a 75/90. Royale Purple is a good product.

this site helps me...lol... ROFLMAO...

other places have tricks to fill the transfer case back up. I used oil pump can, and the level hole to put it back in. Easier then taking off exhaust to get fill hole cover off.
Another maybe but it didn't work for me the piece of allen that I had was too long to fit in and let the cover off, maybe a shorter piece would have worked. Took plenty of pumps but got the oil in.

Ride Safe
