DT175B Crankcase oil

DT175B Crankcase oil was created by Vern

Hello Everyone, I have been using w30 oil in my crankcase per the manual, but i read somewhere it said to use a oil with a special additive for the clutch operation. The clutch is working however it does seem to grab instead of a smooth operation and i am suspecting that I may be using the wrong oil in the gear case. Any suggestions?  Thanks

This stuff works great in these old bikes. 

Yamaha trans-oil plus gear oil 20w-40.

I personally think brand is not important to a certain extent. Just be sure to use an oil that states its designed for use with "wet clutches".  That's the key.
