Great Preformance if you select the proper weight

This fork oil is amazing if the right weight is chosen. Based on your riding style you will want heavier weight or light weight and based on your body weight. Choose the right one and this fork oil is amazing and preforms well.

I always use Maxima fork fluid in my forks so I don't have a good basis for comparison, however every time I change out the fluid in my SV1000's forks I notice a big improvement over the old/dirty stuff that came out.

Great Product

Ok, Maxima products are top notch, that is why i rated this a 5, however, being sponsored now by Silkolene, i would recommend their products to a friend instead of maxima. Just being honest. You won't be dissapointed with the maxima though

Good fork fluid

I used this in my twin chamber Marzocchi forks recently. it gives solid fade free performance. I'm pleased with it.

Great Oil

Great Oil. Good price. Better than buying per 400ml.


good stuff but check your bike one 32oz might not be enough to do both sides

Great fluid

it is recommended to change your fork fluid once in awhile and maxima will help keep your seals in good leak free condition also by changing the viscosity of the fluid you can change the action of your forks

A: There really isn't much of a difference between the two products. The Maxima Fork Fluid has a small amount of phosphorus added to help reduce internal component wear. The Fork Fluid is also color coded to where all of the Fork Oils are clear. From a performance standpoint, they are equal.

A: There is not a specific weight I could give you based on your spring rate. The stock fluid in your forks would be 5 WT., Unless you want the forks to be a bit stiffer, I would recommend sticking with the 5 WT. Fork Fluid.

A: I really don't have anything that tells me what rider weight this fork oil can handle. Most OEM specs for fork oil would call for a 5WT, so this 15WT oil would be good for a heavier rider. It is hard to say the exact rider weight it would be best for though. I would say give us a call at our call center and we can discuss further options with you. 888-676-8853.

A: Fork oil is normally poured into the top of the fork. As far as maintenance intervals on how often to change your fork oil, I would have to recommend referring to your vehicles service manual for that information.

Q: Would this be good for my forks? I have a 2001 yz80.. Also what type would it be 2.5, 5, 7 or 10 ? i have no clue help please?

A: This would be a perfect suspension fluid for your 2001 YZ80. For this bike you want to use 5wt oil, and the recommended oil height is 90 mm from the top of the fork. This is measured with the fork fully compressed and the spring removed.
Q: WT?

A: Higher the number, thicker the weight.

Heavier the weight, the more dampening you get.
