I weight 145lbs and just bought myself a pair of .39 fork springs for my '01 KTM 400 E/XC. I was thinking of putting Mobil 1 but was wondering what kind of oil level I should be looking at? Weird thing though, stock wt is 5wt and I'm actually going for a heavier oil (7.5?), so should I probably stick with 5wt or go with the Mobil 1 with a lower oil height?

TIA

PS: Oops could someone post this in the Suspension forum? I posted it in the wrong place.

TIA!!

7.5 sounds a little heavy for your weight / spring combo, but more relevant is how the valving has been set.

Try it, it'll only take a few minutes to change it if the forks feel sluggish.
