Anyone know of any shops in the south bay that stock Fox 10wt green fork oil? Or a recommended alternative?

Went to Zoom Cycle Accessories in Santa Clara. That place is a mess. Didn't have much to choose from for 10wt. Ended up with a bottle of this stuff

I would be VERY suspect of the performance of that oil. I'm pretty tight to the motorcycle related "goods and bads" and that product does not even hit the radar. Your best bet would have been to hit a Cycle Gear that at least has a number of good suspension fluids by Maxxis, Torco, etc. and synthetics, at that. If that SVI gives you the slightest amount of stiction, I'd dump that stuff and seek a better quality oil. Better safe than sorry on parts that you can't see wearing.

Rock Oil is good stuff, so no worries on that count...

Whether it's an appropriate application for that product may be a different question. Eg. are there different components that go into motorcycle vs mountain bike fork oil? I've no idea as to the answer on that, I've not researched it.

This is just for the oil bath, not for the damper in a Fox 32 F100 RL. They had Silkolene and Torco but not in 10wt.
