Ken Shilling posted: I’ve heard the ATF is a little too thin and doesn’t have enough or the right kind of high pressure lubricants to withstand the transmission and clutch. Ken please don’t post information that is hearsay. The automatic transmission is way, way harder on oil. That’s why ATF was developed. ATF is called out for the TM Moto too and it has a wet clutch.

The funny thing is, everything KZ is hearsay because there isn’t a reference manual!!!! :)

ATF is above everything else, a hydraulic fluid.  It obviously has lubricating qualities, but there’s probably better choices out there, even for the TM….

BTW Honda manual says:  Change the fluid at least,  every 3 races or 7.5 hrs
