Use any regular GL-5 rated gear oil available at the local auto store for a few dollars, with no shipping charges and don't look back. Use the money you save to buy more goodies or gas.

Bikes Ive owned, \'69 Norton,\'48 Harley panhead, \'71 Bsa, \'76 gl1000,\'93 Harley ultra,\'03 Harley ultra,\'05 Sportster, \'82 GW 1100.\'96 Police road king very used. "I tried thinking once, but nothing happened" .,,,

If I ever saw something like that come out of my rear gear case i'd chuck that jug of oil far as I could, Why would you be putting that stuff in you rear? Makes no sence even for a flush

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gear_oil

"Most lubricants for manual gearboxes and differentials are hypoid gear oils. These contain extreme pressure (EP) additives and antiwear additives to cope with the sliding action of hypoid bevel gears."

Because I have some left...and I do not ride with it in...just run it on the centre stand for a minute or two then I dump it. As a flushing oil...its good enough for that...but thats all its good for. And thats all I use it for as I do not trust it for anything other then that. Once its gone, its gone.

Good lord...it was not OVER filled or UNDER filled...and it was not even ridden...it was just run for a few minutes on it centre stand while in 5th gear so that it would move about....then drained right after. There is NO water in there as well....so do not even go there. After working on board large ships deep sea ship working in engines...repairing them, rebuilding them...I think I know how to change oil and what I am doing.....don't you think....if after 37 years I have not figured it out by now...I never will. Its something about this oil....and ONLY this oil....I have no idea whats going on....only that it foams like mad with very little effort being put into it.

Overfilling or under filling would have absolutely no bearing on the product foaming or not.It only has to do with the character composition of the product itself.And tell me,how do you overfill a final drive?
