250F Another 2004 KX250F Project/Build

Got the seal kit and a new spring, and ready to reseal this shock.
Question is - what oil goes in it?
Manual says SAE 5W or Bel-Ray SE2 #40, but I'm unfamiliar with either of these, and dont think either of them are available locally.
Is there an equivalent I can use?
Something that is readily available locally?
I have some fork oil, but I'm guessing thats not the same stuff...???
 
What the weight of your fork oil?
do you have a localshop that is going to charge the nitrogen? Mine was pretty brave(stupid) to pump mine up seeing as I was the one who rebuilt the shock.:sorry:
 
I cant find the fork oil, but I think its 10 and 15.
BUT, I just found a liter of Belray HVI Racing 5w suspension fluid that I didn't know I had.
Yes, I have a shop to fill the nitrogen.
 
Maybe a dumb question -
Why nitrogen for the shock?
Are there any other gases that would also work? Acetylene, argon, helium?
 
I used No Toil oil on this bikes air filter, and tried to clean it to no avail.
Then I read that you can only clean it with No Toil air filter cleaner.
Anybody know how to clean this without buying another No Toil product?
Gasoline? Paint thinner?
Air filter is brand new with <5 hours on it.

Gas
I've used the No-Toil before and I cleaned it with hot soapy water
 
Gotta use the no toil cleaner.
No-Toil blows since you have to use their product only. I only used it because GingerSnaps sent me some for a promo and to right an article on it.
 
I've never used No Toil, but from what I've read OxyClean is what some people use to clean the filter with. :noidea:

yeah it sucks for that reason and I’ve read that it isn’t as clingy as other filter oils.
I’ve been very fond of the Maxima spray filter oil over the years.

that’s right! I forgot about the oxyClean but I think it doesn’t get the filter A-100% again.
