650R - fork oil, any suggestions?

4 posts in this topic

The new springs arrived and I'd like to hear what oil you use. Also - how far from the top do you fill?

It snowed today!!

Well, I weigh more than your average rider at 240. I'm using 5wt, with the level set at 120mm, .47 kg/mm springs, with 15mm of pre-load.

Thanks for the response Kevin -

Are you happy with the results? Was the preload necessary to get the proper sag? I will be using the same springs as you and weigh the same as you,(plus all the accessories that have added weight to the BRP ). What did you use for spacers?

I just used the amount of preload that Race Tech recommended on their site. To tell the truth, I haven't even got it in the woods yet with the new springs!! Just the dunes. I couldn't really tell much from riding out there. I'm going to be going riding all this weekend, so I'll get to see how it works in the ruts roots and rocks.

I will give an update after the weekend.
