The manual calls for 10W. I use this weight. If you travel and carry loads like passengers and luggage, 15W will do too. Glad to see you taking care of a mostly neglected part of the bike.;)


I use Maxima products....no issues.

The OEM oil used in the forks is Pro Honda Suspension SS-8.

This fork oil is 10wt with a viscosity rating of 39.7 cSt at 40 Deg C. and 7.6 cSt at 100 Deg C.
Most OEM cartridge forks come with 10wt fork oil.

The OEM fork oil amount for SP2 forks is 498cc +/- 2cc, and a fork oil height of 135mm to the top of the outer fork tube, with spring out, fork fully compressed, and cartridge bled of any air.
