    A local bike shop put on a demo for this, supposed to be the cats meow, gear lube. It's called Certop Gear Lube. I found this info through google, but no web site. Has anyone ever heard of or used this product before?

    CertopTM
    Advanced-performance multi-grade gear oil
    Lasts up to 4 times longer than conventional gear oils; available in 80W-90 and 85W-140

    Certop is a heavy-duty gear oil specifically formulated for construction and heavy industrial equipment. Eliminates dry-start wear because it distributes lubrication over the entire gear train the instant gears start moving. Prevents seals from leaking. Displaces water for easy drainage, controls foaming, and lowers operating temperatures. Also prevents rust and corrosion. Oxidation inhibitors prolong oil life. Wide temperature range of -30°F to 320°F for 80W-90 and -5°F to 300°F for 80W-140.

    APPLICATIONS: Recommended for use on differentials, limited-slip differentials, simple manual transmissions, axles, power dividers, gear trains, bronze gears (up to 200°F), and gearboxes including enclosed gears of spur type, hypoid, spiral bevel, worm, herringbone, helical, planetary, and unusual combinations of gear types.

    Oboy, just what we need, another super duper, does all lube for us to debate!
    :D
    It might be everything it claims, but I will stick with one of the tried and proven name brands. I don't care how long a mfg. claims thier oil lasts, I can't go that long without changing. :no

    This is just about what I thought I'd hear. When I didn't find a web site for it, I figured it to be another cure all product for the foolish. Slick 50, my Dad fell for that back in the 70's. I passed on it myself since I was fresh out of the service and un-employed. I remember it being very expensive back then. I did some more searching online and came up with this: LubeMaster Construction A lot of people out of work out here trying to sell anything they can... I'm still trying to find Spectro 6-speed in my area, looks like I'm going for a long ride to get the stuff. Thanks guys...

    Aside from the fact that is was so thick, it had teflon particles in it like sand granules and I can't see where that would be any good for an engine. First run through the filter and the filter would probably be clogged.:no

    The teflon could not get hot enough to do all the things they said it would snake oil additive at best also it had potential for clogging the screen in the oil pump pick up
