Exclamation Mugen mtx4 shocks

Hi could anyone advise me what oil to use in my mtx4 shocks? I currently don't know what I have in, but I am sure they need topping up soon and don't know what oil to replace, thanks - James

also depends on what pistons you have and how its handling your track conditions
500-600 is about right with most smoother tracks and i like to use the 1.3mm pistons in hte fromt or 2 hole pistons to give more turn in.
you could also try a little lighter oil in the front for the same reason

Cheers I have the standard pistons in, don know what they are exactly you would probably know, for dry I would go harder than wet I guess.
Cheers,
James
