They leaked just as bad. Figured i must have torn them installing them even though i followed my book instructions and even put a condom over the slider end to ease the seals over. So i tried again with the pyramid parts ones this time they turned INSIDE OUT when i came down from a wheelie. I order some from dennis kirk and they take 4 weeks to get here. I go to put them in and they are the wrong size. Can anyone reccomend where to get seals for my showa non adjustable forks? Im having bad luck so far. The dennis kirk ones are part number 14-9926 maybe they are for the marizochie? forks. I got my seals from here: http://www.racetech.com/evalving/eng...ngname=english http://www.race-tech.com/,,,

Correct measure fork oil?


Normally, the fork oil level is set with the spring out, and the fork fully compressed. Fill the fork to 110-120mm from the top.

Keep having leaking fork seals.have replaced seals and oil after every ride lately.(4)have tried two brands of seals last time disasembled whole of forks cleaned every part,shims everything and had...


G'day. A couple of suggestions-
Damage to the fork slider-chips or dings.
Too much oil in the fork on re-assembly can cause the seal to go.
Worn or loose fork bushes will flog the seal prematurely.
When you transport the bike-if you don't use a seal saver can pop the seals.

So let me help with these.

Be sure that the fork slider is not scored,dinged or damaged on th surface.

A good double check of the oil quantity is to ensure that when you have re-filled the tube with oil & primed it(worked the air out of it), the oil level should be 100 to 110 mm from the top of the leg to the oil with the fork fully compressed. If the level is less than this-drop it to 100mm.

To check the fork bushes-try pull on the front forks front to back(wobble) & feel for looseness in the bushes.

And finally-When you transport the bike-put a chock(I use an empty 5ltr oil container-but you can buy propper chocks from the bike shop) in-between the forks at top of the front wheel .
Now when you pull the front end down it will stop on the chock & stop the front forks being under excessive compression for extended periods-so it saves the fork springs from sacking out too.
I hope this proves helpfull.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

What's the correct oil-level and grade on front fork??


Std fork oil grade all around is 10W, depending on bike usage and preference, it can go down to 5W or up to 30W.
Oil level usually run from 175 -250 cc per fork, too much oil will cause fork to be stiff, not enough can damage fork seal, so go by trial and error but the amount should not run far from above numbers. Good luck!

I have a yzf 250, the dust seals got dirt under them and leaked the oil out of the forks. Is there a way i can refill the oil level without tearing the forks apart?


have you fixed the leak ? if so then you can just pull the handle bars and undo the top cap on the forks you may hear air escaping when you do this but thats ok it shouldn't be there any way adding oil is easy the right amount is the trick (tool required) looks like this available at a local bike shop near you depending on your skill level and what you are doing with the bike the right type and amount of oil in the front forks can dramaticaly affect the bike handeling Good Luck ride safe05motionproforkoillevelgaugelg.gif

82 honda sabre fork seal replacement


No special tools other than maybe an air-impact whench to remove the Allen bolts in the bottom of the fork sliders. These hold the botom of the metering rods into the forks and will spin if you don't have Honda's special tool which fits down the inside of the fork tube. Air wrench spins them off no problem.

V65 Sabre has fule filter behind battery and fule shutoff valve under seat.

Loosen upper triple-clamp pinch bolt before trying to remove fork cap.

Drain oil out of fork, then remove axle and access the metering rod holder bolt at the bottom inside the area whre the axles goes. Use an air wrench and appropriate Allen bit.

Remove fork cap, being careful of the spring pressure.

Remove fork from bike and take out spring and metering rod. Pry dust seal out of fork slider and use snap-ring pliers to remove retainer from beneath dust seal. Use fork tube to hammer seal and slider bushing out of fork slider.

Replace seal and use old seal to cushion it. Make a fork seal driver from split PVC pipe and hammer seal and slider bushing back in. Remove old seal and replace retainer clip. Install dust seal.

Reinstall on bike and install spring. With bike properly supported, stand on pegs and use ratchet, extension and socket to apply pressure to spring and thread cap carefully onto top of fork tube. Reinstall metering rod holder bolt in bottom of fork using thread-locker and air-wrench. Don't over-tighten; just ue high speed to conteract tendency of metering rod to spin inside slider.

Remove fork cap again and fill to appropriate level with 5 weight fork oil (Pro Honda SS-7 or equivalent). Use turkey-baster to remove excess oil to proper level (5 1/2 to 7 inches fully compressed depending on damping quality desired).

Fork oil level: 2006 KDX 200


This all depends on what size forks you have, but a good rule of thumb is 120ml. After that then what you want to do is to ride the bike and make adjustments to your front end until your liking.

KX 125 (2003) motorcycle


its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.
