Montesa 242 clutch oil...........again!

Recommended Posts

'84 242 with 304 clutch & gearbox, oil looks nice & red but the time will come when I need to change it.....so....what's the consensus of opinion?

ATF [Motul ATF V1]

ATF in general  [any favourites?]

10w30 light gear oil [again, any favourites?]


Mineral.......semi-synthetic..........fully synthetic?

Appreciate any thoughts & views on this.

I've just changed mine as the bikes new to me wasn't sure what was in it before but I put in Motul Transoil 10w-30 Mineral Motorcycle Gearbox oil.

And the gear selection is a lot better, used to struggle a bit downshifting before.

Appreciate your response, I had got Transoil on my list funnily enough & that maybe what I go for. The bike is new to me as well, very well looked after but I like to start with a clean slate & put my own oil(s) in.

I’ll look into Facebook thanks Nigel.
