I know, everyone has an opinion on oils, but I take delivery of my new '13 R1200RT tomorrow and live 3 hours away so I want to make sure I have the right supplies on hand to do that service myself.
TRANSMISSION and FINAL DRIVE:
My understanding is that both the transmission and final drive use 75w-90 GL5 synthic gear oil, correct? I would normally default to Mobil 1 here since it is widely available and well regarded, any issue with that other than personal preference?
Are most of you using JASO MA (motorcycle specific) engine oil even though the transmission and clutch are not lubricated by the engine oil? Who's making BMW oil these days? (used to be Spectro a decade or so ago)
Don't mean to start "another oil thread" but the search feature didn't produce much on this.
