TS185 fork oil, wheel bearings and


I'm fixing up a 1973 Suzuki TS185 for my kids to ride.

I need to find some specific info on this and tried to register on, but it never does send me an activation email. My email is correct. It's not in my spam. I've requested multiple times for an activation email and it says it sent one but I never get it. Since I can't complete registration I can't even ask what the problem is. Anyone on that forum got a clue what's going on?

Also, here are some other questions:

1. The manual says use #30 motor oil for the forks, but everywhere else I keep seeing to use ATF, or 50% ATF & 50% #20 motor oil. What should I really use?

2. I also find various different kits for F&R wheel bearings for this year that don't seem to be the same set of parts. I'd like to know for sure what they are so I can buy before tearing it down if possible. Anyone know the answer to that?
