Also running 15K in side tubes and 20K up front. Does that sound correct?

Anyone know with what oil you could compare the SurLube's? They come in numbers 1 to 6 what how thick is that comparing to a 10.000, 20.000 etc.???

Anyone?

I always assumed, perhaps foolishly, that they were in 5K increments, starting at 5K.

1: 5K
2: 10K
3: 15K
4: 20K
5: 25K
6: 30K

And assumption is the mother of all FU's

Although it sounds logical what you have just posted, can somebody confirm this please?

I don't think anyone knows for SHUR

I've scoured the internet and there only seems to be conjecture.

Correct! Not even ShurLube gives out this info... Not even sure they have a website anyway...

Or use the serpent or any other 1/8 oils. They have oils up to 200.000 if 50.000 isn't stiff enough for ya

I use corally damper syrup and it's exactly the same thing, no way of knowing what exactly the thickness is. Next time i wil go for the 1/8 brands, at least then it is clear what it is.

Guys,

I (and a fellow club member with a BMI) had the same question last winter as I wanted to have an accurate weight on the Shur Lube kit #1 - #6 before spending $$ on the whole kit. I didn't find an answer very quickly and switched over to the Mugen 1/8th scale diff lubes. They work fine and have a good selection of incremental steps. Much after the fact, I'm SHUR we came across the info a month or two after we needed it. One of us has it filed away in our notes someplace - hold on and I'll see if I can track it down in the next day or two, hopefully.

That is not the problem Alexander, al lot of set-ups here are assigned with ShurLube numbers and if people have a reference to this they can more easily use other lubes since ShurLube is not available everywhere as easy as in the states...
