  1. Fox used 10wt until 5 years ago then they changed to 20wt. Apparently the 20wt sticks better to the Slider Bushings. Many use Motor Oil and some Professional Fork Service Persons in RSA Swear by the Magnatec Fully Synthetic. Mobil 1 is also preferred and Highly Recommended in the States. The Problem with RS and Fox Products is that the LBS does not stock.

  11. Never Wash a Chain, Just Clean the Outside with an Oily Rag. If you Wash a Chain by Mistake Soak it in 5w30 for a couple of hours. Squirt is very good if you Clean and lube the chain after every ride.
