Now I ride an 02 YZ250 in Vet B and I've got Dave's oil in the forks and shock. I'm faster now, so appreciate the stiffer suspension, but I had a chance to ride these two bikes back to back and I like the YZ way better, even in very rocky terrain. Keep in mind, this is an MX bike with a notably harsh fork. I had to play with the clickers and bunch, and finally settled on a much higher oil height than I started with, but it's definitely improved from stock. It's also only 6-8 clicks between MX and off road.
So, bottom line, I like it and think it's worth a shot. It's really not much more, either, since you would need 2 liters (just over 1) of BelRay and you can probably get away with two 18 oz. bottles from Dave (I bought 4 for the shock and forks and have one left over).
Or you could try Mobil1 ATF for less than $20.
