I need quite a bit. 700ml at the very least. That's almost a quart. 


Yo Peter-
I've got a good bit left over from my rebuild, but I used a combination of 10 and 15, to make 12.5-ish. That way if I found that I wanted it stiffer I could pull some out and add in more 15, or if I wanted more bounce, I could pull some out and add in some 10. So, I have 10, 15 and my own mix left over. Let me know, and I'll leave it out for you.
Later,
Chris

I also have some 15wt I think....maybe even 20 wt for the firmer ride ;)....but most likely not enough for your monster...



Connito:
Wow, thank you guys! It seems like I will gather enough from all of you. However, I would rather buy my own as soon I would have to rebuild another set forks. Do the Advance Auto or Autozone carry it?

Chris, I was actually wondering if I should mix 15wt an 20wt. A lot of people are going to 20wt on the Concours, but most say it's too stiff.


Thank you all and sorry for the hijack Alan!

You're not going to find it at autozone or advanced. It is specifically a motorcycle product. Surprisingly, I did run across some at Walmart one time, since they have some stuff for ATV's and dirtbikes, but it was a really a really low viscosity, 7 I think, which is what those vehicles run.
Maybe you could use twice as much 7wt and that would make 14 weight. Just kidding- dont do that!!!!!!!
Also- for reference sake, Transmission fluid is about 7 weight, I dont think I've seen 20 wt except at the Harley shops.
good luck,
Chris

Thanks Chris! I suppose I would have to go to Greater Boston... Or perhaps I should buy it on line...

Have a nice trip!
