  • Need a recommendation on fork oil brands: Is there a difference?

    I'm looking for a 15w fork oil, are there any noticeable differences in brands, other than price? In my search I've even come across quiet a bit on ATF as fork oil. I believe +4 is comparable to 15w. Anyone have experience with this? The price certainly is right.

        atf is like 10wt but atf is also very hard on seals as the seals are not meant for trans fluid. stick with real fork oil. you seam to have enough issues with your bikes lol

        ibhave used belray for my forks as well as roadwings

                I think there is a conspiracy going on between the bike manufacturers and the fork oil manufacturers. Both my RSV and RS use 18.73 ounces of fluid but the bottles only come in 16 ounces so you have to but 2 bottles and store the leftover 13 plus ounces in the bottle on a shelf to collect dust or 10 ounces in my case after doing both bikes.

                  i always used that extra amount to help flush out more of the gunk in the tubes. after a first flush with atf for the bulk and then those 10 or so oz to get the little bit of atf and last bit of gunk out before i fill her up with the good stuff. but i hear you, lol. i remember when hot dogs and hot dog buns were in different count packages too, lol
