Each fork takes 11.5 ounces of folk oil, and for a 91, use heavy duty fork oil, they fill from the fork tube caps, remove them from the top of each fork, support the bike so the front wheel is off the ground, tighten the Caps to 40 -60 lbs when yer done

Changing fork oil


OK officially you are supposed to measure oil height. Oil quantity is not quite right because you cannot measure the amount of oil remaining in the passages or on the walls. its only a little but to be correct set it at 110mm from the top, compressed, no spring.
if you don't have the tool and don't wanna try to do it properly, 300cc per fork.

1984 had 32 degree rake instead of 29. one model had 2 inch over fork tubes. I added extra 6 degree rake (tripletree) and 6 inch over forks. still have the old clamp and fork tubes and would like to know...


You didn't say which model bike had the 32° rake with the 2" over fork tubes. This is what my book tells me for all the 41mm fork tubes:

1949-early 77 FL, FLH Fork tubes - Part #45950-48 length 20"

Late 77- 84 FLH, 1980-83 FLT, FLHT - Part # 45825-77A length 20 1/2"

1980-83 FXWG, FXD, Part # 45417-80 lenght 24 7/8"

This is all the information that I have. Hope it helps.

Volume of fork oil needed per fork for a 1986 VF 400 nc 13


Well, when you take off the fork make sure you empty it first before anything else then make sure that the fork pressure spring is released before changing the seals. The fork oil amount should be no more than 200 cc or no less than 190 cc

lower for legs there should be a drain bolt for each leg do one side at a time.
Take the top fork cap off be careful the top cap is spring loaded get a pan to catch the oil,remove the drain bolt let it drain.reolace the drain bolt then you can add your new fork oil,check your owners manual for the proper amount and weight oil you need to replace, replace the fork cap.
repeat steps on the other fork.

On my 05 kx250,im changing the fork seals-do you have to fill and bleed the cartridge seperately or just fill up the fork leg?


The best way to fill fork oil is to add the specified amount and let the forks sit overnight to allow all entrained air escape. Leave the fill plugs off. Ofter you let the air escape, plug it up install the forks and add air to the desired pressure if has that option.

My forks just dont have enough resistance.


This is an old thread but just in case you haven't gotten the problem fixed, you need to change the fork oil in your forks. The main reason is to make sure you've got the correct amount in them.

If after changing the oil they're still too spongy, you need to change the oil to a heavier weight oil. Use 30 weight "FORK OIL". Do not use any other type of oil as it may foam. Use fork oil only and in the correct amount. Your owner's manual should tell you how much oil to add.

To drain the oil, there is a plug down near the axle on each fork slider. At the top triple trees, there is a large cap on each fork tube. Take this out and add the proper amount of the proper weight oil. Only do one tube at a time. You may have to get the weight of the bike off the front end.
