KTM 250 1988 gearbox oil
« on: October 27, 2016, 10:59:40 AM »
So, my 250 lives again . Had the rotted water pump cover but with Russell Brown's expertise he cast a new one and all is good. :)
I thought the gearbox oil capacity was around 600ml but I am not certain. The old mag cover that probably had it cast on there is
in the bin so I thought I would check. Also., I have been using Castrol MTX. Is ATF  a better option? Thanks.
