2002 has a NV3550. I put Multitrax in there, hasnt blown up yet.

Remember kiddies - it's not what oil you use, it's how often you change it that counts...

I used some cheap oil in my ax15. Almost couldn't shift into second when the gearbox was cold. Changed if for Redline MT90 and it made a big diffrence.

Used Castrol for years but changes were "chunky". Last change went to Redline which has improved the smoothness of the change - have the AX15 box -

Whats cheaper - a decent oil or a new box ... . . .

Did my ax15 gear box yesterday with Royal Purple Synchromax and it has already made quite a difference to the shifts - where first and second used to be quite stiff they are now shifting much smoother
