    New question here. Oil viscosity in Dual Air forks

    I'm getting ready to rebuild my '12 SID RCT3 Dual-Airs soon, and am looking for some advice.

    Dual Air forks have very little oil compared to other forks, so I'm wondering whether it would be worth it to nix the existing oil and swap it out for some Silkolene Pro RSF 2.5w.

    Will this help, hinder, or be so little effect as to make it not worth it.
    I'm a very lightweight rider.

    If you're just talking about the splash oil for the lower leg baths, you won't notice a performance difference.
    You may notice a wear and tear difference though down the road though unless you adhere to service intervals-and maybe even if you do adhere to service intervals.
