I did the search and read Garth's tutorial. I'll be getting OEM seals and probably picking up the Traxxion Dyanamics Tool set.

I have two questions I couldn't find answers for:

1. What fork oil and what weight? I couldn't find anything on Kayaba 15-10.

2. Grease the fork seals? Special grease?


Thanks in advance.

10 Weight Maxima iis a good oil

Just put a generous amount of oil on the tubes and a little on the inside of the seal before you thread it over the tube

You said you are getting OEM seals ... I think the aftermarket ones have less friction and more sealing surface with triple lip grabbing

There is special seal grease you can buy. I got a small amount from a place that does off road forks, worked well. Ohlins sells it as well, but it's super expensive.

The Traxxion kit is well made and more than worth it for the price!!
