I'm gonna drop this here and in the Enduro forum too. to get as much input as possible.
I have a ATK 250, my son a KTM 125.
I run Belray 75 wt oil, 80 in the summer. I dump it just about every week.
We went for a ride yesterday, (like 19 degrees out) and shall we say the clutches were dragging? shifting a bit slow and notchy??
What oil do you guys run in the cold, (under 30 degrees??)
I used to run Ford ATF in my '99 KDX 200, but the shifting was notchy, so I dumped it out as soon as the weather warmed a tad.
Thanks,
Joe
Yeah it hurt!! But, did it look cool??

As the forums rules satae: DO NOT post the same thing in more than one place.

The Enduro Forum and the General Forum are both the wrong places to post the question, the Basic Maint. Forum would be correct. Please make an effort to post in the correct forum.

Moved.
