bilstein shock oil

if any of you have rebuilt your own shocks, did you get the oil from the manufacturer or is a motorcycle fork oil comparable? i'm curious if it is. i'll be tearing mine down in the next week or three... trying to avoid getting plugged by bilstein for a whole gallon.

Poly may be able to get you some in a smaller quantity

i just looked up the rebuild instructions. each shock (non-res) uses 565ml... so if I'm going to go ahead and refill both, i'll need just over a quart. may as well. get a gallon i guess.....


my thought on the oil, was mainly if there is some major difference between fox or bilstein shock oils versus the oil used in motorcycle forks. i've got a full quart plus some left over from rebuilding the forks on my ninja. kinda wondering outloud as to whether its basically the same thing. its still a 5 weight oil. seeing that bottle on top of a shelf yesterday got me wondering.

i think google may have answered my question....

the Fox oil also appears to be more stable than Bilstein's oil if i read that right.

thanks, guys.
