07 fork: 2.5W in the inner chamber?

Recommended Posts

Thanks Shawn MC for all the fork oil threads. I am just changing the oil on my 2007 forks. Going to to start with 380cc of the 0-20W synthetic in the outers. I have a bottle of 2.5W fork oil and was wondering how well it would work in the inner chamber, for single track enduro type riding. Stock it is a bit stiff over the small stuff and I would like to add better compliance. I bought some honda HP fork oil but after taking the stock stuff out I don't like the look and feel of it. I see talk about changing the inner spring. Is that a worthy mod for the 07. I'm a 200lb vet expert. Thanks. Cam.

You might get some improvement with a lighter weight oil, but you will likely need to start tinkering with the valving to get it where you really want it. I wouldn't mess with the ICS spring. You can tune it changing the valve shims easily enough, might not even need to spend any money on parts if all you are doing is removing shims.
