Front Diff Oil

I went to my local Kawasaki dealer and asked for all the fluids for my 20 hr service. The motor oil is the 20-50, rear diff oil is the Kawasaki brand for wet brakes. The front diff oil is the Kawasaki Gear Oil SAE 80-90W. I told them the book called for a 10-40 motor oil and they told me to use the gear oil instead. Has anyone else run across this?

Yea I know, that is even what the book says to use. Thats why I was surprised when he gave me the gear oil. He was very determined that I should not use motor oil and only to use the Kawasaki gear lube. I wonder if anyone else has been told the gear oil is better.

I just don't want it to screw something up.

They gave me the gear oil for the front diff too. I didn't use the engine oil. There's not much difference between the two even though you would think by the #'s ie 10w40 & 80w90

If I remember correctly the front diff uses a synthetic oil, I will be putting redline gear oil in mine
