    80w synthetic gear oil. You can find it in most car part and motorcycle stores.

    i saw in some forum that you said that a synthetic 80w oil is a good substitute for the fox float fluid.
    i can find only 75W90 royal purple synthetic gear oil. is this good enough?

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Just go buy some full synthetic gear oil. If your local car shop doesn't have it, then your local motorcycle shop will.
