Default Yamalube 80W-90 Diff Oil?

I'm going to put in fresh diff oil in my 05 Kodiak 450 and swung by the local Yamaha dealer to pick up oil this evening. My Haynes manual calls for straight 80W GL-4 oil, however the dealership sold me 80W-90 GL-4. Is it okay to use the 80W-90? They said it was, but at nearly $12/QT, I think they were looking to make a quick buck!

80-90w will work just fine! There is nothing special about gear oil sold at a Yamaha dealer. Walmart sells quality gear oil at half the price! ATV engine oil too!

Like stated above, gear oil is gear oil. We get it from our local auto parts store or walmart.

On engine oil, I only use yamalube. I might be cheap in some areas but when it comes to the engine and wet clutch, I rather spend the extra money

Since I only change my gear lube one a year I use Redline 80w synthetic and shock proof. Engine oil Valvoline 10w40 ATV JASO MA rated. To each their own.

I use Mobil 1 synthetic for my diff's. Not too expensive so why not go full synthetic for the diff's.

I was just thinking of putting full synthetic gear oil in the differentials. I'm not sure which one I'll use but I'm thinking there all mostly the same but may go with Amsoil.
