This may sound crazy, but seriously consider Mobil 1 Synthetic AFT. It should work well with 1.0 springs, and it has great viscosity stability across any temperature range that your forks will ever see. Also available pretty much anywhere.

With the GVs you use lighter oil, typically around 5w. Check with Race-Tech for their recommendation.
