RS SID Fork Oil Change?

I've got a set of very old SID Race forks. The rebound adjuster is borked and would cost more than I paid for the forks to replace.

Now, would I slow down the rebound (and obviously compression) if I was to substitute the 5wt oil that's already in Pure damper with 10wt?

Would doing this cause any other side effects or problems?

    sounds like a plan.

    you could also mix new 5 and 10 to give the feel that you want.

    cant think of any problems.
