Going to replace my fork oil soon, also will replace brake and clutch fluid.  I anticipate all will be the consistency of chocolate fudge on my 2012 with 80k miles.  Everything still feels fine, forks don't leak, brakes are fine but it will probably not look fine.

Will be interested to see what you find (fork oil).  I think you will be surprised (that it is in better condition that you think).

I don't think so.  I changed mine at less than that and it looked like Texas T....

I will change my clutch and brake fluid every year after my rear brake failed. The fluid looked clear, but crud blocked the port on the side of the master, so no braking. I fear the front doing the same. DOT 4 is cheap.
