I getting race tech springs and valves installed in my track bike and was wondering which for oil is the best? Race tech, Motul, or Red Line. I can get a hold of all of them but the race tech is super high priced compared to the rest. But if the race tech oil is that much better and worth it then I'll spend the money.
The only one I'd stay away from is Silkolene. After two trackdays the once purple oil was milky and white. Currently using Bel Ray. I think they are all pretty good, just remember to change oil regularly. 2-3 times a year if used regularly.
Thanks for the info. Philbie I will keep that in mind for sure. I've never heard of anyone changing there fork oil. I learn something new everyday. I just now getting into the hole race scene. I love this shit already.
Most of the brand name oils are very good, Philbie, I've used Silkolene for years and never saw it turn white or milky, I've also never seen Silkolene colored purple, are you sure it was Silkolene? Which ever brand you chose make sure you valve for it. Ten weight is not ten weight. There is a tremendous varience in viscocity and damping qualities from brand to brand. Once you have the suspension set how you like it make sure you stay with the same brand and change it every three or four race weekends.
