While riding warm air is pressured out and to keep the suspension from getting rock hard you should open it every 2-3 rides.wait about 3 - 4 hors after finishing riding.

Hi paul..sounds to me you have to much fork oil in the forks mate.or you have the wrong grade oil in the fork legs...or if u have air valves on top of your fork stems.theyve been pumped up to much.but that would blow your seals..1st off.id drain the fork oil out .then replace with the correct grade oil.and oil level in each fork leg.

Bike front fork


As far as I am aware, the Road king doesn't have air assisted forks. As you have a Harley why don't you go to your local dealer and ask them. But, as Harleys are probably the most modified bike around, it may be worth looking on the forks for a tyre type inflation valve.

Where do you get the overall height measurement at


3 measurments here
*static height-
*dynamic height-
*suspention height(extended fork length)

static height is measured with a plumb line to the ground at the center of the fork tube top with the motorcycle standing upright and no rider on on it

*dynamic height is the same except your sitting on the motorcycle.

*suspention height /extended fork length is with the front wheel off the ground and measured from the center of the front axle to the top of the fork tube.if tube cap/valve is recessed you still use the top of tube measurement but if it has a cap that screws in on top of the tube then imagine the fork cap removed (measurement stops at the top of tube itself.(most always)

Re 2006 Husqvarna WR125 - I want to top up the fork oil, have the measurements and oil but unsure what to open to add oil. Help.


well first of all,,,,,you dont just top up the fork oil,,,,
you drain it all out and refill it with clean fresh oil....
the reson for this is,,how much oil is left in the forks?
if you over fill them with oil you will burst the top fork sead?? bad news that is! so find the drain plug (a nut or screw) at the bottom of each fork leg and drain all the old oil out first,,, then remove the fork top plug and tip in the right amount of the right grade of oil into each leg,,,then let it stand for a fuw minuets,,for the air to come out,,,do up the fork top plug and push the forks down a fuw times before riding it to spred the oil around inside the forks,,,oh,,by the way,,,change the fork oil yearly,,,,,

How do you replace fork oil and what do you do with air valves on 1981 kawasaki kz650 csr front forks? Do you pour in new fork oil and then insert air through the air nozzle on each individual front fork?...


Your owners manual will help if you have one. There used to be drain plugs under each fork. The air valves help suspension smoothen the rides more.

I have replaced fork seals


Hi,
I am assuming the old oil is drained.
Once the tops are opened, lift the bike onto the center stand which will make the forks extend. Refill through the top of the fork with 12 oz of fork oil. The manual states that you must use oil with a weight of approximately SAE 3, and the amount going in needs to be equal in each fork.
Hope this helps

The anti-dive valves are easy to remove...
Place the bike on her center stand, and raise the front wheel with a jack under the front of the engine/exhaust.
first loose the 3-way connector on the lower fork part ( brakefluid ).
Remove the 2 screws that hold the upper part of the anti-dive system to the lower part. You'll see the plunger. When braking, that plunger should move about 2mm out. It must be possuble to push it back in place with fingerpressure. Then that part of valve is OK. All the parts of the plunger are separately available by a Kawasaki dealer.
The lower part of the ADVS is also easy. Just remove the 2 screws holding them to the fork tubes. The fork oil will drip out...
When reassemble, dont forget to bleed the brake hoses at the top of the plungers...
To remove the springs...
Loose both screws on the upper fork clamps.
Remove the rubber stops on the air valves
Bleed the air out of the fork pushing the air valves ( some have only 1 air valve, and an equilibration tube just below the upper fork clamp )
Remove both fork spring stops. Caution, hold them firmly down while unscreing, to avoid the stops jump away at the end of the thread!
On reassembly, the stops must be screwed at 2.3 DaN/m (17 lbf/ft ).
The quantity of oil is exactly 348cm³ in each fork. Must be filled without the springs. Push then the fork several times up and down to pump the new oil in all the valves. Then with the fork down, measure the hight between oil level and top of fork. That must be 379mm.

Hope this all helps...
Don't know about an air valve at the bottom of fork tubes...
