Default motor factory fork oil and intimidators?

I have been able to get two bottles of motor factory fork oil.
It is the oil that replaces "type E" and the weight that it gives is medium light.
Can I use this for my nighty's forks along with my intiminators?

Thanks

I am in germany and have trouble getting "good stuff"

I would not recommend it. Most offroad motorcycle shops should cary a 5w fork oil. Try to get synthetic.

So does that mean it's worth getting, for example, Silkolene Pro RSF racing fork oil:

instead of their bog standard fork oil:

just thought I would update this thread, according to what I have found out in this thread...http://xlforum.net/vbportal/forums/s...d.php?t=522292
it seems the type E is 10wt not 5wt as I thought it was.
