I'm still trying to figure out the question here. You "did both" the tranny and final drive by draining the oil and refilling with 75W90 gear oil like your local shop told you, so what does "re-do" the final drive mean?

75W90 GL-5 rated synthetic gear oil works fine in both places as documented in many, many threads here as well as in the Frequently Asked Question thread located at the top of GSpot. 180 ml is the proper fill quantity for R1200 FDs.
Current: 2014 R1200GSW & 2007 DR650
