Can you tell me how much oil to put in an en500 forks please, Andy


If you never have put for oil into a set of forks, yes you have to check both forks. I would suggest treading lightly. If you have time and a place to block the bike as well as a manual you can do it.
Are you adding oil because the seals are leaking or do you have excessive stiction in the fork? If the seals are leaking, you will have to pull the forks and add new seal and put in exactly the right amount oil.
Do you have air seat or is it a closed fork?
For you en500 you should have a volume of oil in your service manual.

How do I change the fork seals on a 2008 Honda CRF 250 r? Do I use a special tool? Oil? How much oil? Thanks so much for your expertise. Do I put equal amounts of oil on each side? Inner tube- outer tube?


hi,replacing the seal is quite easy,although it will sound complicated,jack up or lift the bike off the ground so that the front wheel is in the air(about 12-14 inches should be enough,remove the front wheel from the bike,remove each fork leg,this is done by undoing the bolts(4 on each leg)the front fork is quite easy to work on just do one at a time,remove the dust cover from the top of the staunchion tube(larger diameter tube),beneath that dust cover you should see a retaining clip that holds the seal in place,remove the retaining clip(and dont lose it),the seal is now ready to remove,the easiest way that i know to do this is to force a screwdriver through the body of the seal,you may need to hit the screwdriver with a hammer as some seal have a tin backing plate,put a hole through the seal on each side of the fork leg taking care not to damage the chrome of the fork leg,then use the screwdriver to lever the seal out of the fork leg,to reinstall the new seal,put a smear of grease or oil around the outside of the new seal,slide the new seal down the fork leg and seat it squarely into the fork tube,very carefully tap the new seal into place being very carefull not to damage the outer surface,i use a small piece of dowell type timber to do this as the wood doesnt damage the seal surface,i use a small ballpeen hammer to tap the wooden dowell,once you have the seal seated down the tube you should be able to see the groove for the retaining clip,reinstall the retaining clip making sure it is seated corectly,replace the dust cover,if you are going to replce the fork oil or top it up do this once the fork leg is back in the bike,repeat the whole procedure for the other fork leg,once you have done the fork seals reinslall the fork legs back into the bike and refit the front wheel,to top up the oil in each leg,simply undo the large cap on the end of the fork leg,you may have to remove the handlebars to do this,be carefull as the cap will be spring loaded and can easily fly off if you are not ready for it,top up or fill with the correct weight oil for your bike(normally a 10w oil),check with your local honda agent for the correct quantity,normally between 400-500 mls,this all sounds quite complicated but is actually quite easy and can be done with a minimal of tools,each fork shold take about 1/2 hr to do...hope this is a help to you

How do i get the oil fork seal out of my yamaha xt600


remove each fork leg from the bike,remove the dust cap from over the fork ctaunchion,you should see a retaining circlip inside the fork staunchion,remove this(and dont lose it),to remove the seal you can do it two ways,1 drill a small hole on either side of the seal(through the seal) thread in a self tapping screw and the seal will come out,or 2,stab a screwdriver through the seal on each side and lever it out,when you go to put the new seal in put a smear of grease around the seal first this makes it a lot easier to reinstall and will minimise any damage to the new seal,reinstall the circplip,then dust cover and put fork back into bike,this all sounds complicated but is actually quite simple to do ,should take about 2hrs from start to finish,hope this helps

Replacing the front seal- located on the fork.


To replace the fork seal you must open the top of the fork and remove the spring. Then drop the fork tube out of the clamp. Once the fork tube is removed replacing the seal is simply pulling the old one off and putting the new one on. You will need to remove your front wheel.

How to fix a leaking fork


hi there ,, if u have taken the forks out ready ,,then u already have an idea wots wot ,, wen u put the new seals on ,, be sure to well oil the seals be putting on to the fork leg,, oil up the fork leg aswell ,, with any oil to hand,, or the seal will pinch or stick as u work your way down the fork tube ,, wot i do to seat the seal in to the bottom part of the leg is use a piece of drainage plastic pipe the same diameter,,,ie, like u see on sinks and washin machines,, the white pipe, use this to push the seal down,, to be able to put on the circlip to hold them in, ,,ive known people to use a hammer and screw driver, to push seal in to its seated postion and marked the fork leg,,and put pits in the leg,, so the seal pops straight away,, avoid the hammer,, cheers,,
