There's nothing wrong with using ATF. The reason many people use a designated Fork Oil is to be able to set and/or adjust the damping with weights of oil. With ATF you are just guessing. If you're the type of guy who doesn't need a torque wrench to tighten fasteners, you can also use your calibrated elbow to shake the bottle of ATF and determine the viscosity!

I was so happy to be on my 'Wing that I patted her tank and was laughing in my helmet!
