Per Scotts this is the type of oil they use in their stabilizers and it's supposed to be changed every year. I can't seem to find 2.5 weight though. Either I'm internet search handicapped or it's just tough to find.

Anyone know where I can get some ordered? I have a race Dec 9th/10th and I need to get some fluid in the stabilizer before then because I cleaned out all the old oil already.

Thanks for your help fellow Piggy riders!:worthy:

Why don't you just get the fluid from Scotts?

Fuchs makes it, it's labled Silkolene. Goes for about 20 bucks a liter.

Use 5W fork oil, I use it all the time and it works good. If the unit does not damp enough, then use AFT fluid (~7W).
