I got a wild hair and got into it last night after printing out the 4Strokes.com thread: Fork Oil Adjustment by Michael Hetrick

It was pretty bad. The top oil was thick and yellow and the lower oil was watery and gray. I flushed them out 3 times each with ATF fluid until there was almost no sign of gray. I took it around the yard and did a couple wheelies afterwards and it seems great, but I will do more testing tonight for sure.
