No comment except to point out that your second link is for RL Manual tranny lube. DO NOT use that in an automatic!

Yes, 2009 Fit Sport ATF pumper. Switched over at 22,000 miles. Now at 55,000. 3 drain and fills with Redline D6 the last 3 qts a mix of Lightweight Racing and regular Racing Redline ATF. D6 still has too much slip agent for my liking. At 50,000 I did the same 2 dump and fills with one more qt regular racing added at the fill of the first dump first dump too get a tad more less slip. Zero problems, I am hard on the trans, so I don't want slippy shifts.

Added note, my car is stored because of the airbag recall and I ran it around the block to de rust the rotors and if you let the car sit, the clutch plates REALLY soaks up the racing ATF. Very precise hard shifts 30% more then what I had when I was driving it daily.

I am using a loaner from Honda 2015 CVT. I really like this CVT.

I am thinking of buying one but the CVT reliability worries me.
