Hey Folks, I need to change the suspension fluid on my front forks. When I got the bike it came with a box with two bottles of Suspension Fluid SS7 5W Honda Pro.

It this the correct fluid for my bike? Manual states ATF?



Thanks,Rique

Only a few years before your turbo was made, Honda was still using fish oil in the forks. I do seem to remember the manual specifying ATF also (guess Honda did not have their own fork oil to sell then). The 5w might do it as you also have the air suspension. I usually use something heavier, but that is a personal preference depending on your weight and riding style. Just getting the suspension's air pressure right and using radial tires will probably make a huge difference in how your bike rides and handles.
