What was the oem wt. of the oil used when rebuilding thermal flow shocks, the reason I ask is I just got a trickit kit for them, and after installing the kit I was using hvi 10wt belray shock fluid, but it doesn't seem to dampen the same as 10wt spectro fork oil? actually the spectro 10wt seems to have better damping? so I am wondering what oil the trickit kit would have used,(back in the day when they were in business) and if it was Yamaha shock fluid, what weight would it have been, as it is no longer available through Yamaha?

We used to use ATF. Does the kit have bladders?
