I'm sorry but I don't have the specs on the quantity and type of fork oil for your year and model bike. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer service. But, I can describe the difference between the "wet" and "dry" conditions of the fork assembly. If you take the front forks apart, clean them out, and put them back together with no oil in them, they are considered "dry". For a simple drain and refill type oil change on them where you don't get all the oil out of them, they are considered "wet". I hope this helps, You can call you local dealer's service department and they should tell you the quantity and viscosity of the oil that goes in the front forks on your machine. They'll tell you something like 6 ounces of "Type E" oil, for example. Harley-Davidson uses these types of specs to describe their oils. If you go to a website for fork oil, like PJ1, they may give a cross reference or equivalency chart for converting H-D "Type E" to their oil. I think that would be their 30 weight oil. If the front end seems too "stiff" with 30 weight, you can drop down to 20 weight. I think Honda makes a 25 weight but not sure. Your Harley won't mind the Honda oil. BG.

Good Luck

How much pis in front forks hd flhr road king


15 psi is the Factory recommended pressure.
Try it. If it feels too spongy pump it up to 18-20. If you need more give it a bit more but never go over 25 psi!
If it feels to harsh drop the pressure to about 10 psi.


Worth checking your fork oil too. You really need clean new oil every 10,000 kilometres (6,000 miles).

I have a 2005 honda shadow areo the front feel excesivly spongy and I have no visable leeks. looking for a solution. one shop said they can change the oil in the forks and another does not feel this would...


Have you had the bike a while? When did you start noticing this problem? Changing the fork oil should help a bit. Just like engine oil, fork oil does break down over time and should be replaced. Also, there are springs in the fork tubes that might be worn out like any other spring does over time. You can either replace the fork oil and springs, or the fork oil and add a spacer.

2005 harley police bike when I hit a bump in the road it feels like the shocks are bottoming out what could be the problem


The front forks can be stiffened by changing to a heavier weight fork oil. I run 30 weight oil in mine. Make sure you use fork oil because it has a special anti-foaming agent in it.

On the rear shocks, they're adjustable. Just turn the adjuster to put more pre-load on the springs. This requires a special shock adjuster tool.

Good Luck
