Default Gearbox oil 2stroke

Hi guys!!

Has anyone use this and what are your thoughts:

-MOTUL TRANSOIL EXPERT 10W40
-CASTROL MTX 10W/40
-BELRAY GEAR SAVER 80W
-MOTOREX GEAR OIL RACING 10W/40 = Using now
-GRO 10W/40 = Used before

I dont have a lot of choice with in the stores, but want to try something else.
My 2013 gasgas 300r has the typical rattle in the gearbox (sound on neutral, but goes away if if press clucth) and occasionally slips under heavy load. So im trying to find the best oil with the choices i have...

Thanks in advance!!

You almost have to try different oils and see what works best for you.

I use Castrol full synthetic, either 0w/20 or 5w20.
Both work well for me.

Every motorcycle with straight cut gears has that rattle to some extent. Nothing to be worried about. Run a good quality oil that doesn?t make the clutch squeak and you?ll be sweet! Castrol, Gro, Belray are all good.

Motul Expert works great for me at least for lack of drag or slip.

I have heard that some people like to use lower viscosity gear oil to reduce clutch squawking. I personally have not any issues with this on any of my Gassers, but might help if you have a noisy clutch when abused.

It'd be hard to do better than the BelRay Gear Saver, imo.
