then why does my yamaha banshee owners manual specifically say NOT to use it in the tranny? It recommends regular 10W-30 motor oil, but says not to use diesel oil. I thought the opposite. Why is this?

How dare they dis diesel oil!! Its the greatest thing ever!! How could the people who made, tested and raced the engine possible know anything about it??? I run diesel oil and its the best stuff, got a uoa to prove it plus I read it on the internet ya know. Sorry I couldn't help myself. I suspect you will not get a good answer on here. Maybe send Yamaha an e-mail and have them explain the reason they state this?
