There is no mention of the oil to use, I have stuck 20wt in there and it feels good, maybe could go a little lighter, just hope they dont leak as the oil would run down the inside of the fork leg and mix the dirt and make a right mess but they are a good price so worth giving them a go, and like I said they do work well.
those forks look great I,m going to get some for they get rid of the forwards and backwards play that the stock one's have.

I was just going to order one of those steering dampers I wonder if yours is just a one off does anyone else have one
