    The SE oil ois a 15 wt and the stock is a 5 wt oil. Yes it will stiffen it quite a bit. I did it on mine and it was an entirely different bike with the SE oil (NOT the racing SE oil). You may want to try the 10 wt oil first, the 15 is quite stiff.

    Thanks guys, i put the non racing SE fork oil in, someone had suggested to add 1/2 oz more than required, i did do that as well, they are just like i wanted, stiff, it's a good thing !
