I haven't changed my fork oil since I purchased it (may 21, 2001), and I'm asking should I do it now since its getting colder and no longer riding? Or should I wait until the spring? My bike is stored in a heated garage and I live in Maine. Thanks!

The longer you wait, the more chance of the fluid oxidizing. When the oxidation occurs, it can eat away at your seals and surfaces. I'd change it now, then again in the spring. Your forks will love you for it! :)

Yes.
