Fork Oil - What single weight?
I recently rebuilt both front forks on my 750. Like an idiot, I let the parts guy at the local Kawi dealer look up what I needed, rather than look it up in the manual myself. Guy gave me 5w and said I had to put 143ml in each fork. Should have known something was up when it took a lot more than that to fill each tube to the right level.
Anyway, I soon noticed that the front end would get a little squirrely if push too hard in the twisties or dealing with some of our back roads that have been beat to death by the local Amish horse & buggies. So I finally pulled out the manual and sure enough, 5w ain't right. Book calls for 10w20.
Now I don't know how it is in the rest of the country or the rest of the world but no one around these parts sells multi-weight fork oil. Went to 3 shops looking for 10w20 and all I found were single weights. Two of the 3 suggested using the 10w, the third just looked at me like I was from mars.
So what are you folks running for tube oil?
