Was there ever a consensus on what oil to run in these newer Brutes? Manual says two different things on two consecutive pages!

I need to add some, and what's already in there smells like gear oil, but.....?

Well, I called my dealer and they said engine oil is all they use, and no complaints. Then I called a buddy who used to be a certified Kawie tech at said dealer, and he said engine. Then I called Kawasaki directly, and they took 25 minutes to tell me they were having a board meeting next Monday to go over the verbage of the owner's manuals, and that she would submit my question for review and they will get back with me.🥴

Then I went looking for my yamalube gear oil to see if I had enough to do the job, and I didn't, so I drained whatever was in there and put in some fresh 10w-40 dino oil. I figure it's got my other diff through 26,000 miles without one issue, so it's good enough for the Brute.

Now I need to go stick my finger in my sweetie's 2012 Brute diff and see what it smells like....🤪
