Default ATTN Shocknut: IPONE fork oil

     

I am taking my bike in to get the suspension done on Monday. Doing a revalve and springs. What do you think of ipone oil? This is what they put in and I am wondering how it will do.


Thanks
Bates

I've never seen it and I believe I have only seen it mentioned once before. You just have to beleive they know it is good enough to put their trust in I guess.

I don't know that Motorex has a real shock fluid yet. I heard Curea mention once they were working on one but thats all I ever heard. Jer has his own shock oil and uses Motorex fork oil currently.

(815) 936-6277 Tracy will answer.

Thanks Shocknut. I got it from CA from one of the guys coming to the mesquite trip. I got it in, and really liked it. So far so good. I don't think my suspension has ever been this good. I raised the amount by 5cc's and it seemed a little better on bottoming, and the action seemed smoother. Before when I landed rear tire first, the forks seemed harsh when they slapped down, but that doesn't seem to exist now. Thanks for the recommendation.

Hi Shocknut,
Reading from other posts led me to believe you have made some research in suspension oil and are very knowledgeable on the subject. You took the time to explain how the shock needs a high viscosity index to stay consistent at hot temp, and polymers are not the best option to acheive it. Found the info very interresting. I went on searching for oil specs from the major brands but then I realized it is about impossible to find if one brand or the other use polymers or not. I also heard you may have worked on a shock fluid (home brew). If this is true, I would be interrested to know if you have plans to sell some per liter. Knowing that I suspect some of the best shock fluid might be... hiding somewhere in your shop

Some of the most important factors you will need to know about a fluid will never be disclosed by the company producing them. Mine will be the same way. After all it is my secret proprietary brew. The polymer thing....they all have them to some extent. One of the points I was trying to make is that VI improver is used to jump those numbers and in some cases significantly. Typically, overload of polymers is said to actually shorten the lifespan of the fluids. Some, well actually most, fork oils are packed with anti-foam agents...same result.

I actually spent over 2 years on this project and I did indeed learn alot and in the process ended up with fluids I feel are actually a cut above most and as good anything out there. I focused on a couple aspects I really wanted improved on my fluids. Besides good lubricity traits I wanted a fluid that would last long and stay very clean. I've got that in these fluids.

All those experiments were not a success along the way. I had one that was a total and complete failure. It's a good thing human nature allows us to learn from our mistakes and the wisdom to search for the reason for it.

But yes, I'm hoping to soon have this and several other propriatary products avialable.

Shocknut, I just want to clarify that I'm not looking to make my own receipe because I'm not working in the suspension biz. But you shure sound like you got something better than what is availlable at the counter. You might recognize me, I'm "no hand" on DRN. I'm looking for an oil I can buy, stick with it and be happy. I got kind of paranoid after I found out the brands I tought were good were in fact "horid garbage". This is why I started looking for key elements I can look at when searching for a good oil. But now, you made it clear I won't be able to find out much because no oil company will let us see the info that counts. It's allright, I don't mind as long as someone can point me to a good product I can buy. If I can buy some of your oil by the liter I definitely would be interrested. P.S. I was recommended 115 sus shock fluid and I can't relate that number to anything.
