oil for K75 transmission
« on: March 26, 2020, 08:03:30 PM »
Hey, I have found a case of new SAE 80W-90 under my work bench. It is 40+ years old.
Is it still good?  No expiration Date. Can I use it for my transmission or final drive?
Thanks

I'd use it in my K, pretty sure oil and additives don't degrade in the bottle.  Probably doesn't have the specs for newer bikes though.
