Moto Guzzi gearboxes in general benefit from a small amount of Molyslip added to the oil, due to the fact that the gearchange is considered to be somewhat "agricultural".  I've just done mine, and wonder if anyone has used it on the A10 etc?
The gear change on my GF is pretty smooth, so it probably doesn't need it, but it was just a thought.

I have added some molyslip to my gearbox because when the bike is hot the gear changing is a bit snitchy. I don't think the Moly made a difference though.

There's no reason why you shouldn't use it but I doubt if you will notice any difference. Tried it in my A7 & couldn't feel any advantage.

Using Halfords 80/90 EP GL4, no problems.

Previously tried added moly but it made no difference just cost more money.
