Climber fork oil

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I recently picked up an old '94 Climber 280 for pretty cheap. As such, it's needed a fair amount of work. As you all already know, information on these bikes seems to be pretty scarce. I just finished rebuilding the forks, but I am unsure as to how much fork oil to refill them with; any recommendations? Also, I heard that 5-7.5W is probably correct; does that sound right?


If anyone has a good line on where to buy parts for these bikes, I would really appreciate it. I made an air filter and rear brake clevis, but would rather buy the correct parts.

Since I'm striking out trying to find the correct volume of oil to use, does it seem wise to find a comparable sized bike, with comparable sized forks, and use that volume to hopefully get close?
