    Correct Fork Oil Rating for Basic Maintenance on RS PIKE.

    Hi guys,

    Is the SRAM 15WT suspension fork oil suitable or shall I say the correct oil for wiping and lubing the fork uppers and seals of the PIKE. I am not talking about taking apart the fork...just very basic external maintenance after every bike wash to keep the fork running buttery smooth. Thanks in adv.

    No, that oil goes inside the fork. You can just wipe the fork with a clean dry cloth as any lube will just make dust and dirt build up on the fork. If you feel the need you can use stanchion lube.

    Stanchion lube?
