Default Synthetic Gear Oil

I would like to replace the SAE 80W90 Final Drive gear oil with a synthetic. Any suggestions for brand and weight?

Brand is personal preference. I'm running Lucas in mine. Weight on synthetic will be 75W90.

+1 on Lucas...

Been running it in my Shadow and Sabre since I brought them home! Don't expect to have any issues on either... Lucas is good stuff!
