Silkolene Fork oil SAE 20w;  1.1kg

Silkolene fork oil comes in different weights to suit the model of your FJ, or you may wish to stiffen the forks up by increasing the weight viscosity.

Warning; 20 weight is a very heavy oil for the FJ so please check you have good springs by measuring the forks Pre-Load.

To check Pre-Load; Put tie wrap around leg; sit on bike. push tie wrap to seal; place bike on centre stand; measure distance between seal and tie wrap, it should be 40mm. 50mm is poor spring and should consider its replacement. 60mm springs are U/S. recommend fitment of a pair of Progressive Springs. see 'Suspension' menu
