Hi all, I have a question. How can I clean old oil? Can I use Cleaner/Degreaser or better gasoline solvent?

It's usually not that critical to remove every last drop of old oil. If you're talking about removing it from the fork, you'll want to fully disassemble everything to ensure the solvents have a chance to evaporate before reassembly. Wipe down with suspension fluid before reassembly to remove solvent residue. Avoid solvents on any rubber elements.

Really not necessary, though.

So just ordered a bottle of the maxima plush 10wt oil for my lower leg service on my pike. Hoping I’ll notice a difference in this vs the stock 0w-30 RS suspension oil. Has anyone used this and noticed any differences?

I dont think you can notice it. the oil is there just to lubricate the contact patches. Bigger difference should be if you change the damping oil for a different one.
