oil weight in forks and shock

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that a lot of people prefer the Honda line of suspension oils. I was at the dealer yesterday and noticed that the fork oil was 10wt and recommended only for the fork and the shock oil was 5wt and said ok for both.

The 5wt seemed very thin for the forks to me???

What are people using?

I run 5 wt in the forks. Faster or heavier riders might go w/ the 10 in place of reshimming.

I run Maxima 5wt oil in both my forks and my shock. I did a revalve and respring on both ends so I can not say what the difference was switching from the stock weight to the 5wt, but I will say that I love my suspension now, Thanks to the Dogger!
