Thanks! I thought that it were different on the roadie.
Is that a good oil? Also I read a lot about people putting 7.5W or 5W instead of recommended 10W. My weight is about 95Kg if that matters chosing new oil.
I want a very good oil

Hours of fun discussing fork oil.  There was a thread here years back search Black Rhino, with a list of fork oils and their stroke index.  Not all oils of the same "weight" have the same stroke index.

The oil works for me, but, I am only 83kg in full kit, 73 in normal clothes.

Hi, did you get this kit? Is it decent quality?
I have a small seep from one of my seals so need to replace them.
Does anyone know the sizes of the seals? Cant find mention of the diameters anywhere.
Cheers

"crispey", before you think about replacing your seals, if you only have a small weep, purchase a Seal Mate (Amazon etc) and give the seals a clean. I have used Seal Mate on two occaisions (both legs) and that has cured the problem.  :031:

Thanks for the info, I made my own and it has gone from a leak to a weep, probably got a bit of grit out but a bit too late I think.
