I have a harley davidson XL883H and need to know what the fron fork oil level should be when the forks are fully extended?

Remove the small plugs at the bottom of each fork slider and drain the forks. Do this by working the forks up and down until the forks are empty. Then, refill the forks with the proper amount of oil. Since you are not disassembling the forks and cleaning them out, you should use the "wet" measure of oil instead of the "dry" measurement.

Since you didn't tell me exactly what year model 883 you have, if the fork tubes are 39mm tubes (measure the top tube) use the following amount of oil. I use 30 wt. fork oil. If this is too stiff, drop down to 20 weight.

883 Hugger --- 10.7 ounces
all others --- 9.0 ounces

That's the only ones I have information for at this time.

I need to know the oil capacity of the front forks on my 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800.

• Place the front fork vertically without spring.
• Compress it fully.
• Pour specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
Capacity (each leg): 490 ml (16.6/17.3 US/lmp oz)
99000-99044-L01: SUZUKI FORK OIL L01
or an equivalent fork oil
• Move the inner rod slowly with the special tool ten times and
more until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
09940-52841: Inner rod holder
Refill front fork oil up to the top of the outer tube so that bubbles
are visible while bleeding air.
• Refill specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube again. Move the outer tube up and down several strokes
until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
• Keep the front fork vertically and wait 5 – 6 minutes.
* Always keep oil level over the cartridge top end, or air may
enter the cartridge during this procedure.
* Take extreme care so as to pump out air completely.
• Hold the front fork vertically and adjust fork oil level with the
special tool.
When adjusting the fork oil level, compress the outer tube fully
without the fork spring.
Fork oil level: 153 mm (6.02 in)
