Default Amsoil chaincase and gear lube in diamond drive?

Are any of you running the Amsoil chaincase and gear lube in their diamond drives? The Amsoil website description for the product shows it also being used in the diamond drive. I’ve only used the Arctic cat act fluid as called out in the manual. Any info?

I have thought about trying something else, but the ACT lube seems to be doing fine...just change every year. even with low miles...however, i would like to try a few ounces of -MOTORKOTE- in there with the ACT..seems to be about the same weight,and is ok for use in this application from what i see.

I started using it a couple years ago, mainly only because the dealer was out of the Cat oil. No issues.
