Use 380cc's of ATF. Using the case sight glass it will show up as half way up the window.

400cc to 375cc is for the Pro model only. The recommended amount for the Edition model is 650cc - although I used to run 550cc in mine for less drag. GG had confusing nomenclature in 2002 for the two different models - so you can get some widely varying answers. Its best to identify it as a Pro or Edition as they were both technically txt 280's....go figure.

The 02' 280 Pro takes 350-380cc's. It's different from the 03' and later Pros, which take about 425cc's. They were giving you info on the "Edition" model, which is the older type engine.

Dude, it takes less than even a few seconds to look at pictures on google, let alone Gas Gas spain, Gas Gas UK, or even Gas Gas usa website, to tell which bike you have, the engine is VERY different on the "edition" verses the PRO models. Gas Gas was dumbass to go back to calling the PRO's as TXT's again around 06

you have an 02, check the Flywheel cover in pictures of new bikes compared to yours, you should be able to tell. so if you have the older engined bike, then it was 650-700cc's. The engine was redesigned and everything is smaller, over simply put. Pro models hold less oil, less weight. BTW, the older TXT or edition engines, the crank bearings get oiled from gas/OIL mixture, where the new pro's the transmission oil lubes the crank bearings. SO in pro engines we change a heck of a lot more than you probably have to in the older engine.

ALso since you {might} have older engine, this litle guide is something to laminate and keep in your toolbox, I still have one. http://mypage.direct...illyd/ggman.pdf

Sorry, didnt meant to come off mad, as much as hurrying to state the facts... just was pointing out you SHOULD BE able to tell easily if you look at the cases or FLYWHEEL covers alone... of how different they are, plus exhaust and everything. you will notice that after 2003, at least, the flywheel cover is BLACK, plus is VERY different than yours in size and SHAPE, fortunately all the Pro models, have been that way for years.
