How do u fill the down tubes on a hoda shadow


First of all do not add oil to your front forks with out draining them first. If you over fill your forks with oil you will damage your forks. To change your oil in your forks, first center stand the bike and lift the front wheel by putting a jack under the motor. Remove the front wheel and axle and put a pie tin under the fork tube. Reach up into the bottom of the fork tube with a hex key and loosen the screw but do not remove. Now take the air pressure cross over tube off, this will allow you to unscrew the fork tops( On some bikes you may have to put a towel on the tank and unbolt the handle bars to get them out of the way.). Pull the screws out of the bottom of the forks and gently pull down the oil should come out now. If you need new fork seals take the lower tubes off and replace(You may need to take off the fender and hang the calipers with wires.). Turn the lowers over and dump out the oil and reinstall fork lowers. Snug up screws and sealing washers on the bottom of forks you can not tighten till you put on fork tops. Now pour in measured amount of oil, again do not over fill. Put on fork tops and air crossover tube. Now tighten screws on bottom of fork. Finish reassembling bike.

Front suspension must be refilled with oil, how to do it?


There is a drain plug at the bottom of each fork. Just drain them and put the plugs back in then take the caps off the top of each and put in the propper amount of fork oil. You will need actual fork oil, so when you get it ask the shop how many cc's of oil to put in each fork.

Can you tell me how much oil to put in an en500 forks please, Andy


If you never have put for oil into a set of forks, yes you have to check both forks. I would suggest treading lightly. If you have time and a place to block the bike as well as a manual you can do it.
Are you adding oil because the seals are leaking or do you have excessive stiction in the fork? If the seals are leaking, you will have to pull the forks and add new seal and put in exactly the right amount oil.
Do you have air seat or is it a closed fork?
For you en500 you should have a volume of oil in your service manual.

Folk oil


Buy some measuring cups up to about 13oz ...before you start on the first fork, release air pressure then take out drain bolt and let it fill up, then pump the fork up and down to squirt out the last little bit.... you"ll get a ball park figure this way. I use ten weight oil and it seems fine, oh and you dont have to buy the expensive stuff from the dealer, any transmission fluid will work.. if you decide to fill it with air be very careful if your using a gas station hose..just give it a little squirt then check. I put in about 5 psi too much and you might blow a seal. Another thing...if its never been changed before you'll find the drain bolts hard to remove..i used an allen with small extension tube to give it more leverage.

VFR400R NC24 front forks are soft. Should they be this soft?


i prepared it to be soft for comfortable riding but if you think that it is to soft try to add some air on it, but check the oil seal of the fork if it has no leak.

Buying a 1988 vfr400


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Most used 400s are ridden hard eitheras a starter bike or forced to max out playing catchup with biggerbikes. But unless abused, they tend to have longer usable life than thebigger ones. For a VFR400 (NC24), areas that would need your attention/check would be:
  • was it imported to Australia by Honda or is it a gray bike? If it is a gray bike, then it would most likely be a Japanese domestic market/model that has a 180 km/h (110 mph) restriction;
  • rear suspension - the NC24 was one of the first production bikes with Pro-Arm single-sided swingarm;
  • listen closely to the "whine" sound from the engine. It should sound healthy not raspy. This is specially true for VFRs because the camshaft are driven by straight cut gears. This model does not use a timing chain or timing belt.
Common areas to check:
  • condition/level of the engine oil. An oil change would do no harm;
  • brake pads (front & rear);
  • carbs and tank condition, A rebuilt/clean is a wise action;
  • sparkplug check/replacement. Note the color/condition of the ends of the plugs;
  • valve check/adjustment;
  • electrical system check which includes battery/terminals, major connectors (high amperage), regulator, lights, switches;
  • chain and sprocket. If adjusted against the stops, might be time for a replacement of the set;
  • fork oil seal.
Even if there are somethingsyou feel like needing work, the general judge wold be how you likeriding the bike. Your body, sense of balance and riding style woulddictate which if ever would need priority work/replacement/checkingover.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
