    I got some fork fluid from Kawasaki superstore. The oil weight is what matters, not the brand.

    Actually that is a real common misperception due to what we have all been taught by instructors at MMI, UTI, high school and TV commercials. For a real answer from an engineer go here http://www.peterverdonedesigns.com/lowspeed.htm and prepare to have your eyes bleed with boredom. I thought the same exact thing for years. BTW- this guys website is kind of cool in a Sheldon Brown kind of way.

    here is some more specific right to Fox http://www.cyclingcentralva.org/geninfo.html By that info you could save some coin and buy Torco which should be readily available at many Moto shops.

    A treasure trove!

    Thanks for the great info - very enlightening!

    I used to use Motul synthetic oil for my motorcycle forks and engine oil; I always liked their products. Interesting how much variance there is between oils!

    You are all right, the cst matters sure. Good info on those posts.
    I like knowing what brand the oils really are. Torco medium for me next time.
    Although I am currently using golden spectro and it feels as good as
    new after 5 years..
