Fork Oil weight.

I am about to (or attempt to) do my fork seals myself instead of getting it to the shop cause they are just plain expensive on the price. I am 300 lbs so what weight should i use inside the forks. Im on Dennis Kirk right now tryin to make a selection.

Re: Fork Oil weight.

I used 10w along with gold valves. If you plan on keeping the bike you may want to consider heavier fork springs. I'm 240 and changed mine to 1.1 kg up from stock at .880 kg. Try going to Race Tech and use their weight calculator to see. Im an agressive rider and I don't have the front dive during hard braking anymore.
