What kind of oil?

Hi, I'm a new member from Bulgaria and I'm a owner of Simson suhl SR2. It was to my grandfather but he give it to me to use it. I like the moped very much but I have some problems with it. If someone can help me I'll be very thankful. So the problem is that now I disjoint all parts, because I want to repaint it and i hear a strange noise from the clutch and the moped is loosing power - it is difficult to climb a little hight on 1 gear and strange metallic noise is hearing from the engine - like a noise from a spring. The other question is what kind of oil for transmission and the section of the clutch to use - is it the same or not?

Is it an automatic or a manual shift transmission?

Probably will use gear oil like the old Casals and Zundapps. SAE 80/90

Re: What kind of oil?

for both section of the clutch and transsmition?

I doubt that your East German made Simpson was ever imported into the USA. Your best bet is to get someone to translate the German manual for you.

Good Luck.
