    Manitous Suspension fluid.

    I use a type of 7 Wt .oil in Marz ' Fox and rock shox .And works well for all.
    Yup Rock Shox uses 5 Wt. oil but opening the dampers a few clicks solves everything.

    But i havenít got much experience on Manitous . recently i opened an Axel . the damper orifices seemed wider than other suspensions.

    And iv heard that Manitous use a more thick fluid.

    Any suggestions or info ?

    I use Ohlins 10 wt oil on... well everything. Including my Rock Shox Boxxer WC... Rebuilt many a travis with it, felt waaaay better then stock.

    Ohlins doesn't list their oils by weight... they list it by flow something or another.. i'll have to look it up tomorrow for you.

    As far as i know, all Manitou forks have 5wt as stock oil. Even their shocks. The SwingerX6 i opened today had 5wt in it also...
