SOURCE: Front fork oil capacity

Hi Lukepentcof.

its 350cc or 11.8 ounces in the Clyma book, but that's for a 1986 onwards model. you can vary the amount you use to suit your style of riding anyways. I doubt it would be that far from the mark.

regards

SOURCE: how do i dismantle front forks to replace the oil seals

You just needed to.... remove front wheel, support bike on something, undo retaining bolts on forks, tap out fork legs from the top, using a soft mallet. Take out fork seals with a seal pick, (halfords) Replace old seal with new seals, in reverse order) sliding over the fork leg, tapping into place. Then put replace forks etc in reverse order (from dissassembly). Hope this helps

SOURCE: fork and engine oil for kawasaki kle 400 from 1993

Get the fork oil from the Kawasaki dealer and he will give you the right oil and tell you how much is needed. The gearbox oil is 10w40, any major brand is fine. I think your bike has a oil dipstick? If not then the oil capacity should be on the casing by the oil fill. Worst case, ask the dealer while you are there!
Best wishes and I hope this helps.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Robert!

SOURCE: how much 5w oil goes into each fork?

Using 5w oil with stock springs, your oil level should be about 100mm from the top with the fork fully compressed, damper rod pushed all the way down, and the spring out. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote and leave a message.

SOURCE: Honda FMX 650 - quantity of hydraulic oil

The best way,is to drain a fork leg into a container, and measure the amount. however if you cant do that, start of with about 100ml in each leg, test them out, if to soft, you can always add a little more oil. from memory, a 250ml bottle of fork oil was enough to do both legs on most bikes.

How much fork oil do I put in each leg of my zephyr 1100


Is you have taken the forks apart and changed the fork bushes, ie forks are totally dry, you will need about 520ml in each fork leg. When refilling and will the springs removed, add about 550ml per leg, the stroke the forks numerous times to expel any excess air. Then with forks compressed the oil level should be adjusted to 119mm from the top of the fork to the oil, ie the air gap to the oil. The add springs and spacers and reassemble.

Change fork seals


you need to undo the pinch bolts on the yolks and remove the front wheel & mudguard. Undo the bolys retaining the brake caliper and swing it towards the frame downtube, secure it with string. Withdraw each fork leg and clean up with a soft rag. On each leg, remove the top bolt (slowly to release spring pressure) and pour out the fork oil and discard it. Pour in a small amount of parrafin and swill it around a bit to clean out any residue. Remove the dustcap or gaiter and put it on one side. You will now see the fork oil seal. If it has a circlip then remove it, if not, then don't bother. Prise out old seal carefully making sure not to mark the soft alloy of the lower leg or the chrome on the stantion. Rub a little fork oil onto the new seal and carefully slide it over the stantion, pushing it all the way down. Use a piece of wood to firmly push the seal into the lower leg until it sits squarely and fully into place. Replace circlip if necessary and refit dust cover. Refill each fork leg with 142 ml of 10 wieght fork oil and replace top bolt. pump the leg a few times to settle the oil and then refit the legs in the reverse order of removal. When done, pump the forks a few times, go for a cuppa whilst it settles and then you are all ready to go.

What is the quantity of fork oil in yamaha g5 motorbike?


It will be less than 500 ml per leg.
Fork oil is sold in 1l bottles

Drain each for leg in turn and measure qty coming out in jug.
Alternatively make sure front end is raised.
Take off the fork caps, take out the springs and use a dipstick to find how far down the oil is.
Empty each fork and refill to same mark.
