fork oil

Posted by sholto_humphries at July 24. 2017

Hello again.

 

At the risk of sounding stupid.....

 

The hand book for my Norton Navigator suggests

Essolube 20 (SAE-20) or Mobiloil Arctic (SAE 20)

 

For the front forks.

 

I cannot find these oils.

 

Are these simply SAE-20 motor oils or are they SAE-20 fork oils.

 

Or are they something else.........?

 

Advice would be appreciated.

 

thanks

 

Sholto

These  were ordinary monograde engine oils of the period. There seem to be plenty of 20 grade fork oils out there. Castrol, Motul and Silkolene  offer them. You can even buy from Amazon!
