Can someone tell me what the difference is between 10w/30 engine oil and gear oil of the same grade? Is it ok to use engine oil in the final drive ?
Cheers in advance

Per Honda use the same 10w30 oil used in the engine, in the gearbox. Gear oil has more additive for gear protection but, not really needed for the type of gears used in our scooters. Some other manufactures do call for gear oil though, in those applications follow the manufactures recommendation

AFAIK the crankcase and the final drive are linked via the airbox vents so might be an idea to use the same product in both as recommended by Honda.
