I was told fill transmission until it runs out the top plug, and 180mL on final drive, 6 oz.

I get the whole "Kill the oil" thread deal, you guys are a hoot!!

Just in case your interested in the quantity for the gearbox it holds 700ml to the fill port. Just thought I mention it incase anyone is not sure how much oil to buy. So it's 180ml for the final drive and 700ml for the gearbox. A 1 liter bottle is good for both if your using the same viscosity oil.

This morning I ordered a 1qt. Bottle of 75w/140 from Redline. It's the NS non-slip oil made for certain applications. I'll give it a go and see how it performs.

Just to update everyone following this topic. Last week I serviced my 2012RT with 75w/140.
I purchased Redline 75w/140NS. The NS is for the lack of friction modifiers that are added for limited slip differentials. As expected initial shifting was smooth and a little less noisy. This is always the case at every servicing with fresh oil. Time will tell so it may be a while to see if these results hold up as the miles accumulate. Here is Redline oil info link.

Hi all, just an FYI, there is a response to a question on the Royal Purple website stating they don't make the 75w-140 in a non limited slip formula. I also can't find Mobil 1 75w-140 in a non limited slip formula. What gives? I do see Redline offers it in full synthetic, non limited slip. I have an 06 RT and want to change the trans oil. I did it once before, but I did not document what oil I used, and now I have forgotten. This would be a nice thing to add to the maintenance list on the home page.

OK, sorry to dredge up an old thread, an oil thread at that. Aren't there enough new ones?

Getting ready to head out on a long trip on my 02 R1150 RT. I chose to refill both trans and differential with Mobil 1 75w90. I didn't realize there was a difference, and I used the LS version, not the preferred NON-LS.

Before I put long miles on with this oil in, what is the risk? Should I rush out and get something NON-LS?

Morning Alan

Not a lot of risk, just a slightly higher chance of some gear oil seepage past the seals.
