Here is a thread about changing fork oil in the 955i bikes. Should be the same for your RS.

As far as brands, you'll get a ton of opinions. I generally use BelRay or Maxima but anything that meets the specs you need should be fine.

The weight of oil should be what is important though. Depending on your weight, riding style, etc. I usually go with 10w, but I weigh 190#.

I probably need an intervention because of the bikes that keep 'following' me home. Current garage:
2001 Daytona 955i, 2 yes two, 2003 Sprint 955i STs (spouse rides one), 2016 Speed Triple, 2001 Kawasaki ZRX 1200R

It's the tequila that keeps me looking young. But I can't speak for Jonboy's secret to younger looking skin

So Scottie are you about 200 as well then, it's the pickling effect right?
