I'm getting close to doing my 1st service. I strongly believe in 100% synthetic oils.
I already Purchased Motul 7100 4T 10w40 for the engine and transmission. and looking for best for final gear. (hope is good for wet clutch)

I found Motul Gear 300 75W90 100% synthetic and Motylgear 75W90.
Gear 300 is for without limited slip. This is for cars I guess.
I really don't know much about the Burgman 650 for 2013.
I don't want to cause damage. I want best protection and high performance.
I live in south florida and it's very hot and humid here.
Does anyone have experience with any of this oils. or recommend other systematic.

Factory only recommends Suzuki oil.(non-synthetic)
I have had 4 italian bikes and they are all 100% synthetic.
Please help I like to order the correct product for my bike.

Joe, ether of these 75W90's will work. The book calls for 90 weight but 75W90 is OK as it is a 90 weight oil. I use Valvoline syn 75W90 as I can get it everywhere.

Thanks for the feed back.
I'm trying to contact Motul for some expert advise. I like to use Gear 300 75W90 for final gear.
On cars I use 100% synthetic and average about 2 more MPG smother run. On bikes I looking for better performance and less friction. Synthetic oil will not brake down like regular oil and its slicker giving better protection.

I just spoke to the Tech at Motul.
I explained that I have a 2013 Suzuki Burgman 650 and needed to know the best oil for the final gear, He said that if Suzuki is asking for a Hypoid SAE 90 the best oil to use would be "Motul GearBox 80W90 - API GL-4 / GL-5". (semi-synthetic)
I also verified and the Motul 7100 is the perfect one for the engine and transmission.
(100% synthetic)
I just wanted to share this info with all other Burgman riders. Personally believe Motul is one of the best oil companies for Motorcycles.

If me to pay lot of money for lubricant/oil, then would certainly purchase Amsoil over Motul every time. Motul is good, Amsoil is better.

I have been using Mobil-1's Gear lube 75W90 since my first oil change.
I just did the same following LeDude's tutorial on youtube. I was using a syringe and I think I put in 360ML versus needed 300ML.

Using the youtube tutorials I also did the transmission fluid and oil change (Rotella T6). Thanks LeDude--you have really given me the confidence.
