Diff fluids in ounces

Does anyone know how many ounces of gear lube in the front and rear diffs. I have used amsoil 75-90 before. Does anyone have a better lube to use. I did notice the rear diff gets very hot after a few miles of hard riding. Thanks RB

Diff fluids in ounces

When I do my diffs I just fill them up till it comes out the fill hole and then put the plug back in. I do not have a 660 but my 700 manual says front diff .21 us quart equals 6.72 oz and rear .30 us quart equals 9.6 oz.

As to your second question I have had good luck with Royal Purple Syn and Redline Oils. I have used both of them and helped cool down the diff alot.
