Fork Oil quickie?

It's been many, many years since I used fork oil. I dealer shopped today and found Amsoil, Racetech light, Honda, Showa, and a few others. What is a good brand of fork oil to use in 04, are what will work best in the DRZ?

any good fluid will work fine.i use silkolene rsf currently.

did you look at the price of the racetech fluid?good stuff,but pricey.

Asking price was $32.00 for a large size bottle. If it's worth it I'll get it, if not please say so. Unless you own a Harley, pickings are slim around here.

for a serious racer it is worth it.for most others its over kill.

I guess I saved 32 dollars then, :cry:

You'r gona pay $10-12 a quart for fluid and the forks take about 42 oz total so you have to buy 2 quarts. $20 bucks at least any way you cut it.

      I had a gsx-s750 and got rid of it and picked up a 2015 drz400sm this week. It's used and the last guy put knobbies on it. I'm switching back to Michelin power 2ct. stock tire size is 140/70. The current tires are 150/70. I was looking at running 160/60. Anyone know if this would be a problem? I'm just getting into the supermoto life so any other general suggestions would be great. Thanks!

      I totaled my DRZ400S last year, did a good bit of work to it and finally got it running.. I want to turn this into my full stunt bike.
      I have read before about people buying a 2nd stock rear caliper & bracket - then cutting and welding it to the existing bracket, then just running a handbrake master, and a hose to the 2nd caliper. 
      Has anyone done this before? Defiantly seems to be the cheapest route to go (staying away from the junction valve / 1 master cyl. & 1 caliper setup.)
      Looking for opinions, pros/cons, and info if anyone has gone this route.. If it seems too much of a risk or hassle I guess im gonna have to spend the $500/$600 to get a legitimate setup 
      any and all comments are appreciated - except trolls.. you better be funny as hell if your gonna troll.
      Thank you all!
