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 have used this BelRay fork oil or Maxima oil and I can honestly say I don't know the difference. The BelRay is a different color and holds up for a good long time. I personally like the BelRay green, so continue to use it when changing seals.Read All Reviews

This fluid helped with the feel of the front end. Unfortunatly a seal started leaking at the end of the first ride with the fluid and I have had to nurse it on a few rides since to prevent leaking too much fluid and doing damage. Hopefully next time I install the seals correctly and can put this fluid through the paces.Read All Reviews
