I've seen 10W30, GL 90W-140, GL 80W-90, GL 75W-90, straight 30W and others recommended for a scooter gear oil. For any GY6 50, 125 or 150 any of those would work fine. I prefer a lighter weight lube to for less resistance in the gearbox, usually synthetic GL 75W-90.
"Money is human happiness in the abstract; he, then, who is no longer capable of enjoying human happiness in the concrete devotes himself utterly to money."
Okay, this is admittedly above my paygrade so I'm seeking advice from qualified scooter owners.
I have a 50cc GY6 cvt. The manual indicates SAE90. The sticker near the port reads "GL-3 only".
I cannot locate an oil SAE90 with API GL-3. I only locate SAE90 GL-4 or GL-5.
I can however locate a GL-3 oil but the labeling has NO SAE# period.
What gives? Is it that critical?
Please only knowledgeable responses.
GL-3 is an older gear oil designation. GL-4 and 5 are for modern applications and for almost all applications substitute in for GL-3. Unless you've got an old Alfa... Those specifically call for a GL-3, although I'm honestly unsure why.
