Can someone tell me what oil I can use to service my Magura Duran Race, the manuals says use Magura type 5 , but does not say what the  Weight  is or Viscosity ect ......

 

Any suggestion on what will be good ?

No use calling Cycles Africa. They are NOT the agents anymore and have no stock of Durin parts (if for any Magura products at all).

 

By agreement with a local bicycle importer who brings in bikes fitted with Magura forks, they were supposedly supposed to keep some stock and now there is a fight because they didn't.

 

Long story and a sad one for Durin owners.

 

Use any old 5wt fork oil in the damper and any old 10 or 15Wt oil in the lubricating bath.  Get it from a motorbike shop. It doesn't have to be blue or red or green or approved by Magura or Fox or Rox.

Check out the Magura website there's a recall on the Durin forks...

 

 

 

Cycles africa have not been the agents since last year August, there is no agent in SA for Magura. sad .

 

The recall was on the first batch of 08 Durin's , i have a 10' durin so lucky there.

 

THanks though.

It was worth a shot, I was not aware that they had lost/dropped Magura, but they never really carried spares for the forks anyway...
