Re: Fork oil/seal replacement

I typically start with 10W oil and this works with the adjustable suspensions. It works quite well on the street and the adjusters are placed at the lower levels. Mostly close full out. With the lower viscosity your adjusters will be mostly fully in. You may have to try different oils until you get the right combination. The level is important as that changes the spring rate of the suspension. On your 250 15W seems to be about right and adjust the oil level higher to make up for soft springs. You may want to skip the spacers as they do not change the spring rate. They only adjust the height of the bike. Fork oil height will also alter the height of the bike.
