What type of fork oil do I use?

Hey all,

A big thank you to all those that replied to my question about fork springs under pressure. Now I have a new question:

What type of oil do I need for my 2007 GL 1800?

Thanks again,

John

Your bike is specified to use 10 weight fork oil, you can also use regular automotive automatic transmission fluid (ATF) which is also right about 10 weight.
