Thanks for writing in Matt,

We recommend Bel-Ray High Performance Fork Oil 10W in the forks of your ZX 600.  The viscosity of Bel-Ray High Performance Fork Oil 10W at operating temperature is similar to the viscosity of SAE 10W-20 motor oil.  Fork oil needs to have anti-wear and anti-foam characteristics which Bel-Ray High Performance Fork Oil has.

You have a pretty good nose for oil smells.  The Bel-Ray Big Twin Transmission Oil, which is GL-5 85W-140 gear oil is formulated with the additive package for the sliding motion that is needed for the gears in your transmission.  The Bel-Ray Gear Saver Transmission Oil 80W is formulated for use in transmissions with wet clutches and is the product we recommend for the primary of your Harley Ultra.  The Bel-Ray Big Twin Transmission Oil will provide the lubrication needed for the bearings, shafts and gears of your transmission while helping quite the gear whine these transmissions make.

Check out our website at www.belray.com. Go to Powersports and open the Lubricant Advisor.  The Lubricant Advisor lists the recommended Bel-Ray products for all motorcycles.

When you are ready to clean the filter spray some engine degreaser like the Bel-Ray Foam Filter Cleaner Engine Degreaser on the filter and work it into the cells of the filter.  Wash the degreaser and oil out with water.  Now put some disk detergent on the filter and work it in then wash it along with any dirt out with water.  Allow the filter to dry completely the reapply the foam filter oil.

Bel-Ray 2-Stroke Oils do not mix with the E-85 gasoline.  There isn’t any problem with them mixing with the gasoline that contains 10% ethanol but not the E-85.

Bel-Ray 2-Stroke Oils also do not mix with methanol.  Look for Castor Oil type 2-Stroke oil.

You can use any engine degreaser to clean the foam filter.  First spray some engine degreaser on the filter and work it in.  Rinse the filter with water and then add some soap like dish soap or car washing soap. Work this into the filter then rinse again with water.  Squeeze all the water out and let the filter dry.  Now you are ready to reapply the Bel-Ray Foam Filter Oil.

Check out our website at www.belray.com under Powersports there are technical articles that cover this type of motorcycle maintenance.

We recommend you use the Thumper Gear Saver Transmission Oil 80W-85 for your final drive with wet brake.  The Hypoid gear oil has an additive that provides lubricity that may diminish the wet braking function.  This Thumper Gear Saver Transmission Oil 80W-85 is a new product.  If you find the Bel-Ray Gear Saver Transmission Oil 85 or the Bel-Ray Sports Transmission Oil in the black bottle these products will also provide the lubricant performance you need.
