G'day Roger.
I'd be asking them which of their products is safe for wet clutch application.
 It's good using a local product/company who spend most of their money locally as well.
I stick with Penrite and Nulon. They may cost a tad more but I know it's quality.
Cheers

Cheers Musky,
Good idea, I've just sent them a message asking that question. I'll post their reply here for others in the UK who may be interested.

My message and the reply from Westway Lubrication Ltd. regarding the suitability of their oil for A7 and A10 primary chaincase.

So, sounds ok to me  *smile*

Good one Roger.
My plunger is without the crank seal. So what I feed the motor gets into the primary and upsets the clutch.  SAE20 looks good for the primary.
Disclaimer: The man said so.
Cheers.

Ps: I luv my DRY belt and diaphragm clutch on the A10 Cafe.

Not tried Westway but I use Mannol Safari 20/50 for engine gearbox and primary.  I've also tried 10/40 semi-synth in the engine which also worked fine (little noisier perhaps).  This time, I experimented with a 50/50 mix of hypoid 80/90 and 20/50 in the gearbox/primary to see if I could eliminate some oil leaks.  All works fine except the oil still leaks.  On the whole, if you change every 1000m or so (engine), pretty much any decent 20/50 mineral will do.

Follow up messages to and from Westway Lubrication Ltd.

If anyone has any special requirements they may be worth contacting.

The clutch manufacturer I referred to in my note is SRM.
