I've pondered tryin it over the years, but there's been alot of controversy on this subject...so I've held off.
Curious to see if there's still controversy about this subject now that it's been brought up again.
Which type did you use, Dexron?

Cheap automatic trans. oil wont offer the same protection a proper spec gear oil

Just  means  your gears will  not last as long   

{EG} IF a gearbox was designed to last  1000hrs and if using atf it only last 700hrs/  will any body notice and blame aft

Some higher spes atf are bad for all the copper bushes in the kx gearboxs

  i think the automatic fluid could break down faster and need changed sooner to compensate from damage. slippery oil better choice. my thoughts. im still running atf but next i buy oil. then compare again.

i used aft oil back in the early 90 s but went back to gear oil , couldnt feel any difference , look if your chasing to make your kx change gear better , strip it and polish everything or get one of them treatments done you will feel the difference then, i did a k5 box and it was noticeable better.

I've currently got ATF in my KX by recommendation of a local friend that's used it for years...

i have no opinion one way or the other. No experience with either at this point.
