Motorcycle fork fluid in hydraulic system

Do I remember correctly in someone posting to put 1qt. motorcycle fork oil in hydraulic tank to help with creaking in jacks? Does this actually work?

You are correct Gary, I did it and found little improvement for the "slip stick" creaking noise on the jacks. BTW you have changed out your fluid in the hydraulic system reservoir? Should be done every 3 years.
