Best shock oil for kyb

I've used the 3wt for 10 years when rebuilding my kyb shocks I use it with race tech gold valves and I love the action I've tried more expensive oil with worse results. I'm 190 lb A rider if you run kyb you must use it.

Best oil for the price ( hands down)

I've used the 3wt shock oil for years. Works great with race tech gold valves. Works better in kyb than showa in my opinion. Will last all season. I really want to try it in my forks but I'm to scared. I only wish it came in a metal bottle so I could save it. If anyone out has ran this in twin chamber forks let us know.

Great fluid

If you are a light weight rider like me (140 lbs) this 3 WT oil can help improve your shock action as the oil is more viscous and flows more easily throughout the valving

A: I cant give you a solid answer on it since it's a personal preference on how you want your suspension to respond. Normally stock they come with something like a 5 weight, so if you want more dampening, go with the higher weight, if you want less dampening, go with a lighter weight. Worst case, contact someone who professionally does suspension and they will dial you in.

A: You would want to contact the steering stabilizer company to see what they recommend using for replacement oil.
Q: Do you need to add shock fluid and where do you put it in?

A: You don't add fluid. You have to completely disassemble the shock to change the fluid. It is not a easy task and takes some knowledge to do it. I recommend taking it to your local shop and having them do it.
