- Soaking RockShox foam rings
It says “15+wt” oil in the service manual, which I haven’t actually got or been able to get.
Seeing as it says 15+ not 15, I assume that the fork isn’t going to explode if I don’t use 15, so is there anything else that I could use (3in1, castrol everyman etc) that I might actually have in the house?Posted 5 years agothegiantbikerMember
Ok, figured as much, have more than enough oil spare from what goes in the legs, and if all goes well, I’m happy to take them out every once in a while and check they’re not dry, but I’d rather not have to buy even more oil just to soak two foam rings.
Cheers guys.Posted 5 years agotwohatsMember
Don’t bother with specific RockShox lube. Go to a motorcycle shop and buy their fork oil
Whilst very true you have to remember that one manufactures 5wt can be another another’s 10wt. A good example is Shell Advance 5wt is the same weight as Rock Shox 10wt. Using the Shell oil is a great way to ruin the performance of a nice plush fork.Posted 5 years ago
If you like the way your fork performs, stick with the manufactures brand of oil or use Peter Verdone’s oil chart to compare the various claimed oil weights against what they actually are.
None of the above is relevant to lubing foam rings!
