Anything but Motul 300v.

Horrifying stuff. I'd rather fill my gearbox with fox jizz.

TBH no real preference, I've tried mineral, and I've tried fully synthetic, there didn't really appear to be any great difference between them, so, I plummed for semi-synthetic. Never had any failures due to the oil used, so, that's good enough for me.

I'm of the opinion that what you use doesn't matter nearly as much as how often you change it.

..that said I use Motul 7100 full synth and I change it every 5k kms.

I only change the little o ring. The larger one I never felt the need to bother with.

My sump plug has always had fur on it, which I am presuming belongs to my output shaft bearing

I change it every 4k KM, good that I do since I show my engine a lot of abuse!
