Default Clutch slipping

I have just restored a 1976 KE100 and part of the restoration was installing new clutch plates and friction discs'.What oil should I be using in the gearbox/transmission.

I think a '76 KE100 used good old 30 weight in the tranny. Or you can go the 'spensive route and get that runny 80 weight stuff that Kawasaki bottles. What does the manual say? I ran 30 wt. in my '72 DT2 Yahaha Enduro with no ill effects. Hell, Pep Boys Pure as Gold would work good too...
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Whatever BMW stipulates in the manual.
