Top 5 best scooter gear oil in India


Following are some best scooter gear oil(also known as transmission oil) available in India.

Changing gear oil, although ignored by many, is an important part of the regular maintenance of motor scooters.

Even those who remember to change the Engine oil regularly forget about gear oil.

Many don’t even know about the gear system/transmission system near the back tire. Thus ignore the maintenance altogether.

Changing gear oil in regular interval will improve the mileage, prevent chipping gear teeth and will prevent a costly repair job.

When to change gear oil in scooters

If the scooter is new, transmission oil is drained & replaced in first service, ie 500km.

And topped up in the second service. And then drained & replaced in third service, etc.

There are two ways you can go about it. You can either top up and replace intermittently. Or just replace every time within 5000 to 10,000 KMS.

  • By checking gear oil level-if gear oil is low, just top up it occasionally, looking at the level. Or just replace it altogether.

  • By km driven – if your scooter does not have a level, you can just replace or top up every 5000 km.
