What the manufacture says.

when you ask this question, you will get a million different answers, all saying the oil they use is the best.

I've recently bought a '13 EVO 300 and when researching the same question it seems putoline nano trans GP is the way to go. I havnt tried it yet but will be changing to it shortly.

Which depends on who is currently sponsoring them, not on the oil itself.

The owners manual recommends Panolin off road 4t blend 10w/40, whatever that is. As I've never heard of it, let alone know where to get it, I'm going to stick with the putoline.

I run Maxima 75 wt lite Transmission Fluid in my 2015 Evo 300.  Used it in my Scorpa and Gas Gases too and have always had great clutch and shifting.  Plus I can get it at my local bike shop.

So am I - ref the apparent recommendation of a fourstroke oil for a twostroke according to craigh88's quoted info. 

I'd be fairly sure that is not what Beta UK will be selling, or recommending, because their sponsor will have something thought to be better suited.

Pretty much any wet clutch suitable engine oil or gearbox oil will work reasonably well, and clutch action is down to rider preference, so you get loads of opinions.

My personal preference is motul 300v 5w-30.

Running Motul 7100 10/40 in my 16 factory 250 2T. Switched to Motul since this is what my son runs in his 4T. Best clutch I ever had in a Beta.

I really liked the oil that came in one of my new Betas, so I checked the full spec sheet as the factory oil was not available here in Canada, at least not anywhere near me I came up with:

  • API SM/SL/SJ
  • JASO MA-s
  • ACEA A3, and
  • Semi-synthetic
  • 10W40

I hunted around the stores for an oil that met these specs and have been very happy with a Lucas product. It is designed for wet clutch operation as well.

The full synthetics have too much drag in my experience. Be sure to do the clutch mod as per the Beta forum sticky lisitng, this will do more for your clutch than the perfect oil.

I have done the Beta fix on ither bikes, but my '16 has no drag at all. It could be my springs as I used 160 Gasser springs cut down to length.At the start of this year I severed the tendon in my clutch finger, so I had to make my clutch pull as light as possible. Lighter pull than about any bike and  very progressive. Probably not the best for zaps, but I still get up most ledges ok.
