Fork Oil Weight

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give advice on the best fork oil weight for my 07 Sherco.

I'm about 13 St and considering probably 5 or possibly 7.5 Wt. My Sherco manual advises SAE 4 (which I presume is 4 Wt for the light weight Spainards and seems unobtainable over here).

Does anyone change their oil weight depending on the time of year i.e lighter oil in the winter?

Thanks.

I am not sure what 13 stone is but I am about 225 pounds and I run 5 wt year round. Still amazed the bike hauls my butt around.

alright mate,

I use extra light, 5 HVI (PJ1) in my 290 and my weights about 12 stone-ish.

hope that helps.
