i cant read jaffas reply

but a light sae10 grade would be about right for your bike if its the forks, mind do both forks though, if you have released the gas and oil on the rear monoshock im afraid it needs sent away for servicing, usually costs around £80 but it will perform as good as new, highly recommended
