1290 Steering Damper

Postby MaximusVR46 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 11:29 am

If anyone has changed their stock steering damper oil which brand did you use? Is Motul Fork Oil Expert Heavy 20w ok to use?

cheers

Your best bet for an answer would be to contact a suspension specialist like 100% Suspension or a chap that I know who does suspension servicing as well as tyres:

Is there any particular reason that you're changing the steering damper oil, performance issues or just a periodic change?
