    Maxima 75w. I used standard Dexron III in all my GG's with good luck. Was going to do the same but decided to go the Maxima route. Yes it's more expensive, but I barely use 2 quarts of year.

    Dexron III just like the last GG and seems to work very well.

    Sounds like we can end this oil thread now.

    Garrett runs that clearish looking Maxima, but if he ever sells me that TRRS the bike and I will bleed red!

    Yah just like the 2019 colors didn't grab me. I am glad, because if it had been a gold based on the 2020 raga colors, I would have been upset with myself getting the RR instead of waiting for the GOLD.

    the 18 Gold is the best looking bike TRS ever made so far, IMHO.

    I assume you mean going back to ATF? I think I am gonna try one more round of ATF, which is weird to me, usually I can't wait to put in my Yamalube... I can't source the Maxima locally.

    what I really like is right now this is the 1st bike I have had that I feel there the least amount of clutch drag, than any bike since the 99 gasgas 321.

    Ok thanks Gordy, can you be specific for me, so I can order the right bottle? I surfed and see some say MTL some that say extra light, some that dont (least on amazon I assume older picture) some labels purple some blue.

    I do NOT live in urban area, the small city near me, where we have only even 3 cycle dealerships with 2 more than 4 bikes on the showroom, rest are used street-bikes and 4 wheel 'pickup' replacements.

    thanks

    I ran Rock Oil in my 18 TRS but the 19 clutch dragged with it. Tried the red ATF and it worked better.

    Anyone else find their airbox screws are too short? Specifically the top ones. Feels like only a couple threads are biting.

    The side ones fasten into threaded tabs in the frame, but the top two thread into metal clips on the frame. All four are the same length, but the top two should be a bit longer to fasten properly.

    I'd like to get some longer ones, and will starting hunting, unless anyone can make my life easier and point me to some. I'm doubtful that my local hardware store will have them.

    Measure them, I never had any issues so far, with bolts for airbox/seat. THis is the TRS thread, are you talking about a gasgas?

    Yes a TRS, 2020 250RR. The screws are 14mm long, total length. The top ones should be closer to 20mm to be fully threaded into the clips. It only takes about 2.5 turns to loosen the screws before they come out. Are your top two screw threads tapped into the frame, or do you have clips too? If the frame was tapped like the side ones they'd be perfect, but with clips you now have the extra width of the hole in the frame to account for.

    Found my thread measuring tool and they are M6 1.0. Found some 20mm stainless on McMaster.com that look like they'll work, though you have to buy 25 of them. I'll check Ace Hardware first.
