I posted this over in the suspension section but may have more luck here. What oil should/can i use for a set of Ohlins forks off an 03 TM 250E. Do i need to run Ohlins fluid or can i get away with a 5 or 10wt Maxima? Also...does anyone know what the stock clicker settings should be on them...i just want to get a baseline to start from.

We have used 7.5w cartridge fork oil with great succes in this application. 5w would probably work ok too depending on the set up. Make sure to use fork oil designed for cartridge fork applications.
