Time to service the steering damper - where to get oil ?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by Dawn, Mar 9, 2007.

  1. Hi guys/girls I have a scotts rotary steering damper, and it needs an oil change.
    The scotts website sell small bottles of oil but I kinda need to do this in a hurry.

    According to online instructions, scott's recommend the following suspension oils:
    From here:

    Bel - ray HVi light or 3w
    Spectro Very Light
    PJ1 2.5wt

    Would anyone be able to lead me in the right direction for sourcing one of these three oils?


  2. Sorry this isn't of any help but...do you even need a steering dampner?
  3. yes. it is a must have safety device for any large bike.
  4. If you don't get joy from your local motorcycle shop then I'd suggest you try a mc suspension specialist.
  5. Oil

    Use fork oil as it is hydraulic oil & available @ most large bike shops.
  6. Well the local bike shop have 2.5 weight motul fork oil. So I'm going to use that stuff.

    Thanks and take care,
