Anyone know what trumpy put in? Wanting to put my new springs in and maybe go up a weight in fork oil too for less squishiness - btw that's a very technical term!!

I put 15 wt in mine. I think this is more for the knee dragging type as I find the ride a bit harse now. I'll change back to 5 wt eventually. It's a lot of $hit to go through to just change the oil. :mad:

I'm pretty sure that when I put Progressives in they used 15 w. I don't know about knuckle dragging but the point of stiffer springs is to keep the front end from diving when you brake hard, which the earlier Rockets did.
