In a WP shock it is best to run 2.5, 3 or 3.5 weight oil.

the maxima 7wt will need less damping on all 4 circuits.

better to get the right stuff

3wt Maxima is good stuff.

Motul 2.5 wt would be fine.

Shock oil can stand the much higher temp. a shock will run at.

As long as it is shock oil it will be fine.

In recent KTM manuals the Shock oil recommended by WP is 2.5wt.
