Default Fork Oil - 97 WG

What do you use for fork oil? The manual indicated 10.2oz - wet/11.2oz - dry and 20 weight.

I use the HD heavy fork oil. I've use aftermarket heavy oil as well before. Bel-Ray or something like that. Probably still have a half bottle on the shelf.

That's what I use as well. Now, having said that I'm waiting for somebody to tell me I'm wrong.

Well... hahaha just kidding uncle g.
Use whatever you want. At 150lbs i tend to use belray 10wt and i run 15wt in my dads dyna(hes around 200lbs). If it was me i would check out the stock springs and replace if they seem to sag or are pretty beat up.

If your looking to firm it up a bit, 20 is good. I also believe 1/2 to 1 oz more per tube will also firm it up a little more...
