I have ROX SHOCKS JUDDY XC fork, and one question!

What type of OIL is used in shocks (rox shocks brochure says ..only use ROX SHOCKS OIL wt.5 wt.10 or wt.15..). Logicaly wt. stands for density of oil, but is it in some relation with SAE value?
I am nos sure that I can find original ROX SHOCKS oil in my country, so if anyone can give me info wich type of oil can be used as supstitution!!!

Maybe oli for car shock or automatic transmition ??!!!


Please HELP


best regards,

Nemanja

Oil for motorcycle shocks is identical to oil for bicycle shocks, and any of the good quality ones will work in your Rock Shox fork, despite the warning in the manual. As long as you use the same weight that is called for in the manual, (5wt, 7.5wt, etc).

The motorcyle fork oil is more easily available and much cheaper.
