I have searched the database and found several posts, but I can not determine from them what the specs are for the stock fork oil for my 99WR - the posted info is conflicting. Is it 2.5? Any recommendations on brands, I plan to change the oil soon. Thanks

Golden Spectro light weight. Excellent oil. 110mm-100mm from the top with the springs removed is my recommendation. Spectro repackages its fork oil for a few suspension
hi performance companies. Don't waste your money on the repackaging.

Pro Action says all high performance cartridge forks now use 5w, regardless of which big 4 mfg. Only valving changes.
