I am on my phone so don't beat me up for nit using the search. How much oils goes in the rear shaft and how do I Gage if it's enough. There isn't a fill line/ stick like the oil and other fluids. I am gonna go with the Amsoil 75 90

Fill till it starts leaking out, then have a buddy hold it to the right and fill just an ounce or so more and cap it off.

:agree:

If you do not have someone around to help you tilt it to the right, you will be fine without that step. You can get the same effect by having the front wheel down hill from the rear.

Basically though, get as much as you can in there.

Spin the wheel a couple of times and top it off.
Put the plug in before you spin the wheel or it will "spooge" out and make a mess!

I put mine on the stand, fill it level, turn the wheel slow so the gears pick up some of the fluid, then top it off again. And stick the plug back in real quick. :D

You can get at least 3 changes out of a quart.
