Apart from the oil capacities and grades the owner's manual offers no help with these.Presumably the job is straightforward-just release the drain plugs and refill at the  filler / level apertures.(I've done them before on my Breva 750 and 1100 Sport) The manual states Agip oil but presumably a good make like Silkolene or similar will suffice?Obviously the bike is well out of warranty now.

Agip if you live in Italy.

Best advice is pour in the exact measured amount.

After putting the drain plugs back in (with new sealing washers). Yes been forgotten more often than you would think!

Any GL5 oil of the correct viscosity rating will be fine.

As we get a discount and their advice is free ask the folks at Opie oils I have found their prices to be spot on and their advice invaluable . As with ALL Guzzis , drain and fill with measured amount do not rely on fill level holes ....they are OK for a top up check but always best to use a measuring jug and pour in slowly You will need to get a filler with flex pipe Got mine from one of the many Pound type stores ....Bevel box level plug is notorious for thread stripping on the big block bikes BE careful how you retighten these

Mine is a funnel with a Honda breather hose attached. Big smile (Thin walled flexible tube.)

Thank you.....i've done the gearbox oil and re-plenished with a GL-5 spec gear oil but have another question regarding the bevel box oil : the manual says to use a GL 4 or 5 spec 85W-140 oil. I have enough 80W/ 90 gear/ diff oil from one of my other bikes and was wondering whether this will be OK-it is a GL-5 rated oil?

If book says 85W-140, then . . .

NB I tried the above in my Tonti FD, instead of the usual SAE 90 stuff, ran much cooler, interestingly.
