Hi, im going to service my RockShox Reba SL 2009 with Poploc for the first time. I was just wondering what the best oil to use is and whether i need to replace other parts such as the seals.

I have looked at the vids on internet and have a WMB issue on how to service them.

Thanks for the advice, clwydian_rider92.

    I just had my mate service my forks tonight (Pikes) I got the oil from CRC. Didn't bother chaging any seals this time- but if they're looking worn/damaged I'd have changed them.

    Any suitable suspension oil will be OK assuming it's the right wt. I think you need 15wt and 5wt for the REBAs. You can get seals in the service kits although you get other stuff too such as valve cores. A spring and damper kit will set you back about £ 40. Sometimes seals can swell so it's a good idea to replace them if you want that new plush feeling back plus it is easy to damage them when cleaning the innards. You should also have some isopropanl alcohol to throughly clean the innards.
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.
