Changing your engine oil is a task you probably have down to a science. However, changing your fork oil is another story. This is a service that can sometimes be overlooked due to a lack of knowledge on the subject.
A lot of movement occurs within your forks and this constant movement creates a considerable amount of friction and heat. The viscosity and consistency of your fork oil changes when heated, and over time will loose its resistance to flow. The oil may leak or can become contaminated from debris due to faulty fork seals, or even become contaminated from little metal shavings that accumulate over time as the springs rub against the fork tube. So while this is a service that is done far less often than the regular changing of your engine oil, it is one that should not be overlooked. The typical recommended fork oil change for cruiser style motorcycles should be done every 20,000 to 25,000 miles.

I saw this product used in a KYB rebuild video on youtube. I laughed, thinking he was paying a premium for glorified contact cleaner. However I noticed the price wasn't far off from the contact cleaner I normally use, and I ordered a can because I needed to spend $7 more to get free shipping. I was wrong. This stuff works. I'll be using on suspension rebuilds from now on.Read All Reviews

Race Tech makes good hard parts for all makes of suspension, and they make no exception to the oil they produce. Very high quality, and my riders who ask for just a refresh when I switch them over with an SKF fork and dust seal kit, think I give them special treatment every single service or think I coated something in the internals. Just the fact it is better than the oil the manufacturer produces, goes a long way in making you or your next client a very happy rider.Read All Reviews
