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 mine.do 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

I to bought the Anderson steering damper, also found it to be way too long. Fitted it with a little modding, but found the steering way to direct so went back to stock setup

Confused by the steering damper, is that the genuine M5 Cross upgrade that doesn't fit of just a thundertiger one you tried to modify?
No Dez its the genuine M5 upgrade, its way to long and the springs so stiff it will never work, not going to waste my time on it, like I said a little Tamiya friction grease on the steering rod will sort it, strange why the damper is such a poor upgrade as the forks are fantastic, you just got to try em!!!!

Just one more thing, I have heard guys are racing the M5 without the gyro, I guess if you can keep the speed up I cant see why it would not work, but I kind of like how slow you can drive this thing, but its food for thought.

It does not fit, give it up and just add a little Tamiya friction grease on the steering rod, maybe they will update it, lucky its only cheap so not too bothered but nice try Anderson

Out again today with the Anderson to try out the oil damped front forks, got to say they work so well no problems at all, landed every jump with no rebound bounce got to be one of the top option parts for this bike
