2.5 vs 5.0 Fork Oil

Recommended Posts

Does anyone, or has anyone used 2.5 fork oil in a MX bike? I have a 2012 RMZ250 which is kinda stiff on the compression side and want to know if this is doable? I currently ride/ race +40 Novice, MX.

 

Thank you,

Dominic

I have used Torco RFF-5 in cartridge forks on many occasions, which is comparable to the viscosity of many 2.5wt shock fluids. With that said, the weight of suspension fluids varies depending on manufacturer. Which specific brand of 2.5wt fluid are you considering using in your forks?

If you google suspension oil chart you should find a complete list of suspension oils by wt you will find some brands 5 wt is thicker than omit hers 10 wt but it will give you the true value to work from
