Your Kawie Shop has the right stuff. Look for Kawie wet brake diff oil. Also any good tractor hydrolic oil works...NOT ATF. The front needs that same as the engine, but be sure what you use in the engine is compatable with dual-sump or shared sump applications. That means the oil has to work for gas engines as well as gear boxes.

Kawi wet brake oil in rear.

Regular motor oil in front diff.I do not recommend putting synthetic in front diff.It has been known to cause "pulling' when used.I know you don't like the dealer,but you can usually order it online.

Welcome to the forum!!!!!

I have used synthetic engine oil in my 2005 BF750 from the very first front diff oil change and have had ZERO issues. I just don't see how synth oil can cause the problem there. This is my 6th year and so far so good.

Yea,some do it,some don't.I can't explain it.But when a buddy of mine put it in his it kept pulling to one side.He drained it and put regular oil in and it was fine..?????
