Suspension Oil '01'

6 posts in this topic

All,

I ordered 2 bottles of the yamaha Suspension Oil "01" for the forks from my local store and to my surprise it was $22/ea!! Holy smokes!! Does anyone know of a place where I can get it cheaper?

Also how many of you use the yamaha oil "01" and how many of you use something else?

Autozone has Mobil 1 ATF for under $8 a quart.

sometimes you have to pay for the best and other times you don't! :)

Bel Ray makes a high quality synthetic for about 1/3 the price. "01" translates to 5 weight oil, just in case you were wondering. Set the oil height to the correct level for your riding style and body weight. Stock is 130 mm from the top. I am at 100mm (195 lbs). Do this with the forks fully compressed and the spring out.
