Oil only, the nipples on the fork legs are oil nipples , not grease nipples, but a light coat of grease will not go amiss on the springs when assembling Oil is a few squirts every 500 miles according to the transfers on the fork legs, the forks are not filled with oil, just the bushes lubricated every so often, by means of the oil nipples

transfers

Post  piston 197 on Sun Oct 04, 2015 2:54 pm

on the early merlin forks there was a gold transfer on the fork legs above the oil nipple stating
USE LIGHT OIL
IN PRESSURE GUN
NOT GREASE
