Hey there,

Are there any issues with using 10wt oil in the damper of a reba instead of the 5wt? I'm figuring that it'll decrease brake dive a little, and if I increase the negative pressure a little, still keep a the small bump compliance. I have a non-adjust pop-loc version so i cant increase the compression damping in increments.

any thoughts?

The ports will choke on 10wt giving you nasty spikes at high speed. The rebound will be too slow and increase the likelihood of the fork packing down. Increasing negative pressure will again slow rebound causing packdown.
