I emailed Sasquatch and he says the new ones take the same amount of oil, so I went with that.
As for the weight, I guess I'll find out how 10w works. Already got it filled up and jacked with nitro. I am 240 fully geared and will have a fully loaded bike, so we'll see. If it's to bad I can change it out.
The 08's have a step-less adjustment for the rebound.
I can't wait to get this back on the road, upgraded rear spring, put progressives and heavy oil up front, and a 685cc kit. Should be like a whole different bike!
