    Save money, don't buy fox float oil. Just get a good quality hydralic/fork oil of the same weight from a motorbike shop... Younger a lifetimes supply for the same cost.

    Re: Fox Float Oil

    The problem with that is that Fox Float Fluid doesn't have a weight on it.

    Handily I happen know that Finish line's Wet Lube is a perfect substitute!

    If you must have the proper thing then go to Mojo or do a search for Fox Float Fluid

    NO, you don't use fox float fluid as damping oil you only need a tiny bit of it for lubrication.

    Don't confuse fork oil with float fluid.

    So, are you looking for float oil or suspension fork oil? Float oil is far thicker than suspension oil.

    I may well have been confusing the issue... Good to know that though

    Re: Fox Float Oil

    On an earlier post descusing fox forks it was said that one person lifted the seals clean and topped up with a teaspoon of float fluid, as my forkshave notbeen done for a long time i thaughti would do this to help tied them oer untill i eather have enulf money to get them done... or enulth nerve to do the my self!
    Also in my MBR maintenace mag they put it in their rear shock for maintenance.
    My forks have never been serviced but have had the bike for two years... i think i may need to start to do sumthing with them!

    Whatever you do, when servicing your suspension... Know your limits.

    .... Also don't attempt to service your shock the weekend before an important weekend away on the bikes.
