Re: What is the specs for the fluid that the forks use
Best is to use recommended OEM fork oil in the SAE10 or SAE15 range like Castrol Fork oil-10 or Fork oil-15, as number gets higher so is the viscocity and harder it on rebounding. When filing the fork do not over fill as it would make the fork response very stiff and blow out your seals. Good enough free advise?

no not related in the transmisson the is a forlk that moves in and out when you pull the gear shifter toward you that allows you to move from each gear as you release the gear shift the forlk is released and this is what keeps the car in a certain gear, then this becomes miss lined the gear indacator will be off usually by one gear.( eample selctor shows D but its actually in N) the forlk is held in place by a screw with a sleve and when the sleve cracks or breaks the forlk will get stuck or locked so you can't move from gear to gear unfortunitly this is internal of the transmisson and not a back yard repair
their is a forlk conected to the pedal that when you push the clutch the forlk pulls back and allows you to shift between the gears. when the car is off the forlk is in a nutral state but inguages when the engine starts
hi lilsilence, thank you for using fixya. below is a line from dirtrider.com, answered the same question for a 2003 which is the intro for speed sensitive suspension.
Several ways to go here. Remove half of the fluid in each fork and addback a 10wt. This will approximate a 7.5wt. Going to a 10wt. willreduce bottoming but will give you some harshness. Depending on yourweight and riding style it is difficult to give you proper advice, justgeneralities. I use ATF fluid. I'm valved for wood and light MX, stock springs, and Iweigh 155 lbs. ATF is cheap and is something simular to 7.5wt. I'm noexpert and my explanation might not hold water but it works for me.
Mobil1 Synthetic ATF is a very popular fluid that will probably be the weight you want.
Seems to me that I can make much more difference in the action bychanging the fluid levels. If you mix up riding between track andtrail, you may want to consider sub-tanks.
Draw out half of the fluid with a piece of tubing attached to a saryngeand put back an equal amount of 10wt. Adjust the level from there tosuit your comfort. Sub-tanks give a greater amount of adjustability and plushness. Pricey but do the trick when properly set up.
