There is 644 ml of oil in each leg, Suzuki say L01 type oil. 5W oil should be the equivalent, if you want stiffer suspension us 10w, it really depends on you. Most are happy with 5W oil

Where can I get a turn signal switch assembly for my 82 Kawasaki kz750b/e also my bike has problems starting also won't stay started or idle what do I do? It has a new battery and cranks but won't get...

You can try ebay for parts, Kawasaki forums, internet, craigslist or junkyards. Most likely that age bike (if it has not been run in a long time) is the carburetors need to be rebuilt. Unless the fuel in the lines has been replaced before storage with some kind of 'fuel stabilizer', more often than not..this is not the case. The challenge is finding rebuild kits or a shop that rebuilds them. Not an easy DYI project as gaskets and o-rings/seals can easily break. Very small orifices in the throttle body are plugged up and difficult to find and clear out, etc.

If you could find a carb that was from a recently running bike that fits this bike (the specific model can be repaired using parts from the same model either earlier or later years. depending on when the manufacturer introduced a new model where parts a no longer interchangeable).

Need headset size Schwinn Windwood. Want to replace fork.

1 inch threaded. I would suggest you take the bike into a bike shop and have them give you all the specifics related to replacing the fork. You are going to be very limited as too replacements if you use the original headset, Also you need to know the steerer length of both the original (measure your bike) and the fork you will use. This may need to be cut and threads chased, that requires special tools.

Bottom line take the bike into your local shop, have them take a look and make sure the project is going to fit your budget for this bike.

I need a fork for this bike,who do i call. the fork is bent need a new..

Since proper replacement of a fork is to some extent a fine art and requires specific bicycle mechanic skill and tools, I'd go through a bike shop for both the ordering and the installation.

Do you think that MOTOBIKE mobils can be a perfect lubricant for MOUNTAINBIKE SUSPENSION FORKS??

You can use the same lubricants as long as they match the specifications for your Mountain bike fork. Each manufacture of fork will provide a list of recommended weights and types for the specific fork model.

In general the mountain bike will use a much lighter weight lubricant and the heat resisitance needs are far less. So in general the Motorbike suspension fluids will be too heavy.

The Fork that is pictured in the bike represented will not work well with Motorbike oils but if you have a different fork it might.

I need to rebuild my 04 CRF 450R front forks

The best way, is with the manual that comes with the bike new, if you don't have it, find or borrow one (Same model and year) because it has all of the steps and fluid capacities in it. There is no way to "talk" you through it.

I have a 2004 yamaha midnite roadstar silverado i notice that front wheel axle is hollow all the way across from fork to fork on front wheel is that normal

The axle looks pretty solid to me. I have NEVER seen a hollow axle. This sounds like one of those "Trick" items that is supposed to make the bike lighter and faster (and more prone to crash due to a weak axle). For safety reasons I would get a new axle.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

I need to get new fork seals and cant find out what size the forks are so i can order a fork seal driver it an 1978 suzuki gs 750 street bike also i have never done fork seals and would like a diagram and...

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. There is a '76 manual there. It is close enough to your '78 to be extremely helpful as not much of anything changed in those two years. The listing just says "Suzuki GS750 ". Page 90 has a diagram. Page 93 says to mix 50/50 10w30 motor oil and standard ATF (automatic transmission fliuid) for the fork oil. You do not need to tear down the forks to install a new seal and the seal can be installed without the special tool.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Top rating for this answer? Thanks!

Yz 250 2008 possible 5th gear stripped, or shifting fork bent?

Do an oil change. If the gear were stripped there will be lots of metal particles in the oil. More than likely the fork is slightly bent such that the slider for fifth gear is just barely engaging. Put pressure on it by increased throttle and it pops out.

Front Folks

riding the bike is aa good start as it will show up in handling of the bike if there is no obvious visible distortion also fork oil leaks and stiffness in the forks the best way would be to get an alignment check
