Brother i asked about this at PW too many times but never really got a proper response for it. And no one mentioned anything about Power Steering oil :S I am glad you have given me another aspect to look at this issue of mine.
So how much will it cost me? The STEP Power Steering oil you mentioned.
I know that fork oil need to be changed after a while but if i am not wrong, the duration isn't as short as a normal engine oil or even ATF for that matter. I think Fork Oil should easily be able to cross atleast 10k kilometers mark very easily. Am i mistaken?
Somone close to me did offer me a local Hydralics oil once but i refused as i didn't know which brand it was ... if any. (As per him, it was used in heavy duty machinery and yes he was a bike's mechanic). There was no packing but the price he was telling me was simply ridiculous. It was like 100-120ml in that bottle and for that he was asking Rs.300. :\ So is that power steering gonna be the same kind of expensive stuff?
Also, please tell me how can i know if my front shock seals and giving up. There is no leaking or anything though. However, i haven't changed any seals in like 3 years or so. Its all stock since the beginning.
