Fork oil?

Hey guys, wondering what weight oil you are running on your RGU? HD-is not much help, they have a screaming eagle weight...haha Joke. Was wondering about a good BelRay or Other Synth oil weight. Ride 2 up most of the time. Was thinking 20 weight. Thoughts? BTW 13 RGU with 34K miles.

actually, they have 2 screamin eagle weights. there is screamin eagle heavy, and screamin eagle race.

I am running the heavy. I like it. some folks think it is too heavy and mix it 50/50 with stock.

do not get the race. if you do, it'll feel like concrete. pretty much for track use only.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Thanks Guys, I will try the Shock Therapy Suspension Fluid #10 Medium...Second questions is How tough is the Job. Do you need the 1 3/8 open end wrench to get the caps off?
