My very humble excuses, but I do not know how to correctly translate 'Hinterachsantriebsöl' . Rear axle drive oil?

I have replaced 'all' fluids in my recently purchased SW, with the exception of the oil that is in the drive system of the rear wheel. [Page 3-16 in the German 'Werkstatt handbuch' (workplace manual)]

I have checked the level, and it seems it needs to be topped up, but I wonder how to do this without creating a mess, since it is a tiny hole, and quite deep to get to, as well. Does one use a seringe, or a tube???

On a German SW forum, I read about somebody who used a thicker grade oil (75W90) instead of the advised 10W40. He claimes to have a more silent drive since he used the ticker oil. Is this a good idea, or should I stick to 10W40?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

I use a empty bottle of wood glew 300 mil. with a tapered pointy end, then I take a 1/8" aquarium air tub , stick it on the end of the screw cap 4" long .It fits into the screw hold,and there is no mess. It takes 250 mil. to fill it. cheers

75w90 gear oil is essentially the same viscosity as 10w40 motor oil - the viscosity of gear oil is measured differently than engine oil, so the 75w90 gear oil is not actually a thicker oil. It does have a different additive package however.

As for whether that additive package is better or not for the scooter, I don't know.

Gear oils generally have hi Sulphur content... you can smell it. It can adversley affect some brass/bronze bush material and therefor is not specified for some gearboxes. I would not use it if a motor oil is specified.
