My LBS's didn't have any fork grease so I'm still looking for a good source for both fork grease and fork oil. Where can I get some for my fork?

For oil...a motorcycle store, fork companies simply relabel existing product and charge you 2x (or more) as much

Fox-Current 10w Red (Silkolene Pro RSF 10wt) and Green (Silkolene Fork Oil 10wt) and older Fox 7wt (Torco RSF Med)

Marzocchi 7.5wt-Spectro Golden Very Light

Rock Shox-Maxima fork oils

Manitou-Motorex fork oils

For Fox Float Fluid or Rock Shox Red Rum, use synthetic gear oil

Most forks don't need grease these days, but if you have one that does Slickoleum is then best I've ever used. You can order directly or your LBS can order it (relabeled Buzzy's Slick Honey and again, marked up).

I've never heard of it and for good reason upon looking it up it is a grease for paint ball guns.

I cleaned all the gung out of my XCR fork and put in the Slickoleum and what a difference. I had to tighten the preload because the sag doubled with the new grease. It's like getting a brand new fork, all the little bumps on the trail just disappear now. Thanks for suggesting Slickoleum, it's great stuff!
