i use bel ray but use whatever the factory manual says if you must...you have to make a decision if you want to go up or down in weight to suit your riding habits and circumstances..obviously thicker fork oil will give a harsher ride..i dunno thats your decision...for my 30 year old junk if the manual says 5 ounces i put in 4 ounces of belray 20wt and 1 ounce of STP.....works great...old racer trick to use 1 ounce of STP from way back..but you have to decide for your modern bike what suits your needs and style of riding
