fork oil

I have a stock 2002 220 and am sure the fork oil has not been changed prior to my last three years of ownership nor while I have had it.
Fredette's notes say to use 7.5 wt. oil, make sure you have the right spring weight, set the oil 100mm from the top with springs out I forks compressed. Also check for viscosity stability - some brand are better than others and Maxima oils look good.

Here's the latest on my '95 200 build:

Current:'05 300 EXC; '86 Yamaha SRX 600 | X-Bikes: '74 SL125, '76 125 Elsinore, '76 R90/7, '86 & '92 XR600R, '85 XR350R, '04 CRF250R; '90 & '95 KDX200; '05 200EXC
