2017 Sherco St 250 Factory gearbox oil

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Info required please....The owner's manual says 700cc of 10W40 but I have read on here 450cc of 80wt light gear oil. 

I prefer gear oil but could someone please clarify the correct quantity and viscosity. 

Here's hoping ☺️

The manual is correct. 2017+ models with diaphram clutches all take ~700mL. The fill plug doubles as an inspection hole, so you could always just stuff it as full as you can then whatever runs out was extra, with the bike level on its tires. You could use 10w40 motor oil, but most folks use 75w gear oil (Maxima MTL, Silkolene Gear Oil Light, etc.)

RYP recommends  75wt gear oil. I have been using it with good results.

Thanks for the replies...... I took the filler plug out the other night and oil started coming out, am I correct in assuming that it's overfilled and I need to drain some out? 

Thanks again....
