fork oil

[QUOTE=seasider;20373745]
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:
