From the service manual

Fork Oil Viscosity: KHL 15-10 (KAYABA) or equivalent

Amount (per side):
When changing oil Approx 480 mL (16.2 US oz.)
After disassemble and completely dry 567 +/-4 mL (19.2 +/-0.14 US oz.)


Different weight fluid and different amounts of fluid will yield different results. Please research this and come to your own conclusion.

If I remember correctly at my last fork fluid service I used Maxima Racing Fork Fluid 7wt Blue 19.2oz per fork.

Beleive that's what Traxxion sent me to install the AK20's. Just followed directions and used the fork oil level syringe thing. So simple even a coonass could do it.

Give em a call. Sure they'll hook you up with the right stuff for your app.
