Use whatever fits best in your budget and change it regularly. I prefer ATF myself.

Use whatever you want but over the years of racing I have found silkolene trans fluid to make clutches last longer than any other oil I have used. Everyone will have an opinion on this. But Silkolene also makes the best suspension fluid money can buy too.

im changing from Maxims MTL Fluid 80wt TO That red bottle from Honda that is especially made for Hondas and have been told by many that it also works well on other brands as well. "HP TRANS 80/W/85W BIG RED BOTTLE" you cant miss it. And just throwing that out there for pre-mix i use that bean oil " Maxim Castor 927 .. Gold Label"

Keep it 2-Stroke
