Suspension tuner note

I've been playing with my Rock Shox Sid lately(as some may know) and made an interesting find. Mainly that Finish Line suspension oil is not all that good and is overpriced. The local shop wants 15 bucks for a little bottle of the stuff. The fork called for it in the manual and said the initial "pop" of stiction after 6 hrs sitting is normal and to be expected.
Since I needed more oil after tweaking, I decided to go to the moto shop for a look. Victory Moto fork oil for the same wieght but a full liter was 4.50 a bottle.
That oil has no stiction problems whatsoever. None. And its cheaper. Go fig.
