I have found silkolene Pro RSF fluid to be the best money can buy. A little pricey but worth it. I do suspension on a daily basis and have found it not to fade nearly as much as any other fluid on the shock dyno. It's more consistant than any other fluid.

Someone please sticky this.

People ask me,
"Can you tolerate stupid people", I always say no.
When they ask why not.
I say, "I can't tolerate stupid, because stupid may run me over one day."

Yeah, I was going to order those, but even with Google Translate, there were certain bits of info they were asking for that I didn't care to give (dob and maybe ssn). So, I bailed.

Thats that same thing I did haha seemed a lil sketchy to me. And if they mess stuff up in with billing it's hard to deal with another language.

guys, if you organize a group buy for any cbr500 parts of K Speed, can help you out for the purchase and post it.
