    Oh I found it fairly quickly . Yep totally different then for new people to their X2 you have to relearn some of the servicing items.

    I guess show me evidence of brass/cropper components or synchros in our diffs/transmissions and I'll go back to GL4

    "Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lubricant LS 75W-90 can also be used in rear axles where API Service GL-4 lubricant is recommended
    Not recommended for automatic, manual or semiautomatic transmissions for which engine oil or automatic transmission fluids are recommended"

    I can say that if you use Mobil 1 75W90 like I do, you should be good for 9K miles

    From my researching looking into GL4. GL5 replaces and exceeds the GL4 specification so why wasn't it used in the first place. My auto chain store does not carry GL4 and no need as GL5 is specified as better backwards compatible. As for the metal used on either diff models I'd have no clue. Few if any have failed gears as I recall.

    Run any oil you want as long as it's GL-4 or GL-5. Which means I'll be running my Amsoil. I won't be running Yamaha's oil never did.

    This has nothing to do with WS2. It's run whatever oil you want with GL-4, GL-5. Which amsoil does. Whoever wants to run OEM Yamaha oil by all means go for it It won't be me.

    Maybe the X2 spec has changed but I don't see why Yamaha would have built a different rear end as the rest of the power train is the same apart from the engine.
    Again what does this have to do with WS2?

    3 oil changes in 1k miles and the oil has always looked new.
    Changed mine twice in 700 miles that I have on my X2 now. Came out looking like new. As long as you use a quality oil like Amsoil, Mobil1 that proves nothing. I won't be running Yamaha's oils never did. I sold my last Rhino with 8500 miles all by NOT using Yamaha's oil and still was like a new machine.

    I has to do with Post #9, where the gear oil specified requires friction modifiers. The Gen 1 did not have that requirement nor specified in the manual as I confirmed again. If Yamaha changed the requirements for the older Diff's as well could be a question but I doubt it.

    That's all. X2 diff different than Gen 1

    This has to do with my first post again. "Anyway let me know your thoughts with anyone that has knowledge first hand with Tungsten Disulfide use". I could care less about what oil brand anyone is using. It's nothing more then a sales tactic from Yamaha saying you need to run our oil only. Everyone else's oil will ruin your rear final. Whatever lol.
