Front and Rear Diff Fluid King Quad

What are you guys using? I know its SAE 90 and Mobil 424. But where are you getting Mobil 424 from other than the stealer? Also all I can find is 85w-90 at the local parts stores... does it matter

    Yes it does matter, the rear dif. fluid is a tractor trans/hydraulic fluid. I'm using Mystic hyd/trans fluid with the same spec. as Mobile 424. Mobile is not sold in our area, go to Mobile's site and get the spec, then go to your local farm store and look for an equivalent, get the premium stuff, not the cheap s**t. I had to buy it in a 2 gallon container, I gave the rest to my dealer.

    i know it matters front to rear what i was asking was the front can I use 85w-90 gear oil? the rear is more like clutch fluid from what ive been told. My local dealer has the kawasaki stuff for the rear. no autoparts store sells the rear stuff i know that. the front i assume i can use basic valvoline 85w-90?

    Syn. for the front is great.I like the Valvoline stuff. Fill the rear thru the hole with the large plastic plug. the one on the side is for the level, fill untill it pours out.

    I'm not sure of the name of it but I use a synthetic gear oil made for boats (bluish green in color). My dealer highly recommended it.

    I'm running synthetic in both front and rear diffs..

    Suzuki uses SAE 90 GL-5 hypoid gear oil in both the front and rear diffs unless other wise specified in your owners manual. Also to answer you question about 85w-90. It will work just fine with out any problems and falls with in the OEM specs.

    Mobil 424 is a UTTO (Universal Tractor Transmission Oil). Seach for that and you'll find tons of info.

    I'll be running synthetic in my KQ's rear diff, as I'm sure the diff is not cheap to replace. The only imeadiately verifyable synthetic UTTO is from Amsoil. I'd be willing to bet some of the other stuff out there, say Kubota Super UDT (they make non super also) might be synthetic.

    Kawasaki K-Kare premium gear oil SAE 80W-90. API service classifications: GL-5, GL-4(Hypoid) Suitable for both normal and limited slip differential applications. Don't think you can use this in the rear dif. though
