Bel-Ray vs. Maxima Fork Oil

This weekend I'm going to service my forks. My forks are all stock. I've read up a bunch of threads but haven't really gotten any difinitive answer of which is better.

Price wise, Maxima is cheaper than Bel-Ray and I've read from a few unsupported facts that a lot of suspension shop prefer Maxima.

Locally, I can get Maxima, Bel-Ray, Motul, and Motorex.

I've read that Silkoclean (sp?) and Ohlins fork oil is the prefered but none are available and my fork are stock .. no need $20+ for a liter of fork oil (Ohlins).

What do you recommend?

For stock forks... theyre all fine.

I redid my seals and oil last spring. I used Bel Ray. No issues.
