Suspension lubrication

Keep Q20 as far away from any bicycle as you can.

 

Just wipe them down with a cotton cloth (old T-shirt)

Buy some silicon spray (Spanjaard) and lightly coat.

 

(Q20 is not a lubricant)

Click on the link in my profile there you'll find a video on how to use Brunox

 

As said above after a cycle or two of your fork, dropper or shock the rest should all be wiped away, otherwise it'll create a funky mess on the seal on your next ride

 

**Stanchion lube IS NOT a replacement for regular maintenance, if the fork is thrashed inside spraying lube on the outside will do nothing

 

The 'lube' is more for keeping the seal supple and soft than it is for actual lubrication

Like happiness, fork lubrication comes from within.

 

Service your fork regularly and you won't need to lubricate anything from the outside.

 

That said, something like Brunox Fork Deo, Veyga Wet Scream, Finish Line stanchion lube or just plain old fork oil can help reduce initial stiction after you've washed your bike. As said above, stay away from aerosols and all purpose oils as they often have additives including chlorine that will swell or attack the rubber in your fork seals.

Where can one get WPL? I haven't been able to find it locally...?

Super hard to get here

 

Limited suppliers and resellers

 

Best is to import on your own and that's even harder with the current global situation

Just get some fine grade wet n' dry and buff those stanchions up a beauty.

I took your advice and now my fork is ruined. 

 

I couldn't see your disclaimer at the bottom due to poor eyesight. 

 

You are not a good person.
