Interesting observation.  RP 75w-90 worked great in my 5-speed, but RP 75w-140 worked even better and I've been running it exclusively for many years now with no issues or regrets whatsoever.

why not go to your local walmart and get you a quart of the supertech full synthetic gear oil, either 75-140, or 75-90 and see how that does for you?  i've been running it in mine for almost 20,000 miles and just about ready to do a second oil change and go with it again.  $6 for a qt.  can't be beat   :2vrolijk_21:

Redline "Heavy" Shockproof! Improves shifting and significantly quietens the H.D. shifting "clunk". Used in my `05 and `15 CVO same result.

I used Spectro Platinum 6-speed oil at about the 2k mile mark. Have not had any issues. Nice and smooth
