What was the viscosity of your gear oil?

avon venom, Bridgestone E3, Metzeler... take your pick. They are all pretty good and way better than stock!

I have an Avon Venom now... I think they're discontinued? But I don't think it wears as well as the Dunlop Elite 3 that I'll be putting back on after the Avon is gone. I don't ride this quite like a sport bike, so the wear is nicer than the uber-stick. The Dunlop E3 is good enough for me, grip wise.
