Where do you get clutch and geabox oil SAE 20 and SAE 30,or what do you use?

The National Motorcycle Museum do Castrol XL 30 in 1 Litre quantities, but can not find SAE 20 for the primary chain case.

Thanks for any help in this

Bernie phone numbers sent via private messages

Also I use 20 grade fork oil for the chaincase, it's said to have other additives in it but it's been OK for the last 10 years or so in my standard Leader .
