Amsoil Shock Therapy Oil

Recommended Posts

I like it better than Maxima and I used maxima for 20+ years:)

 

It lasts alot longer.

 

I was wondering if anyone uses this stuff. If so, how is it? How does it compare to Maxima fork and shock oil?

I'm about to do a fork & shock rebuild and was wondering with what oil would I use. I guess this opinion is good to know. I need 3 & 5 wt for the fork and 3 wt for the shock, would they have it in those weights?

No, they only have 5 and 10wt fluid. Just use the 5wt on both the forks and shock.

 

You will never know the difference betweem 3 and 5wt fluid.

I've used about a hundred gallons of AmsOil ...nothing wrong with it ....holds up good in the shock.

I now use Maxima 85/150 racing fork oil....19 centistokes ....and slick.

I use Motul shock oil V.I. Of 400

Point is what makes a fork oil good is slickness.and they don't have a good V.I. Number so you don't want to use it in a shock.

But in a shock there is a lot of heat....so you need a high V.I
