An oil height of 105mm was the good average setting for us here in sandville Florida. You can go as low as 90mm oil height if your a big jumper but the forks get a little harsh on braking bumps.

I like and have always used Maxima brand oil in 5wt. for those forks when fresh and new.

Some guys like 7wt. oil in those older KYB forks due to the fact that as the bushings get looser with age they(forks) to get springy.

7wt. will slow down the rebound circuit just a tad and make the front feel a little more stable. Any shop can get Maxima as Parts Unlimited stocks it.

Hope this helps:ride:
