What weight fork oil do I need to use in my 2001 KX250?

Recommended Posts

Actually this is for my sons bike (01KX250), he weight's 125 lbs and rides novice level. His fork seals are leaking and I've found out all the info I need except for the stock weight oil or what weight he should run. The suspension works fine but I'm not sure what weight is in it now hence my question. I'm guessing 10W would be fine being he's pretty light, but would like the advice of more qualified people than myself. Thanks

I would even try 2.5wt as he's light

I'm using 5w20 in my 03.  Works great.  Way cheaper than specialized fork oils.

Yes springs are a must

And 2.5wt helps in those forks
