The volume of oil is calculated by air gap. This is proportional to your weight.
BUT to make life easy, 380 to 400 ml gives a good ride across the board.

If you are planning to race the bike, I would sugest letting a pro do the suspention for you.
Although it's not rocket science, it takes a lot of experience to get it perfect.

Enjoy the ride

86 kx250 stuck in 5th gear

Yes you will have to split the engine and more than likely have to replace the 5th gear shift fork. It can be a common fault with this model kawasaki. New old stock part is not available so you will need to locate a good second hand one.

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.

Front forks will not seal

dissassemble forks and replace fork seals.(and oil) becareful forks are under a lot of spring pressue. use a workbench vise to hold fork tubes. you will need the manual for this. plus you will need to know the "proper" amount of fluid to put back into the forks.

How much fork oil does a 98 kx250 take

You measure from the top of the tube down to the top of the oil.

Basically take the spring out of the fork and then push the top part of the leg all the way down as far as it will go,then when you fill with oil you go between 90 and 110mm from the top of the tube.

90 is the highest you want the oil to be,going down to 110 or anywhere in between will make the forks plusher at say midstroke,so for instance go for 100mm as a starting point

Fork oil 1987 KX250.

G,Day back.Not sure about how much oil to put in the forks but may be able to help you stop the leak.Get a film negitave from a camera.Like the ones that come in the developed packet.Cut the notched section off the side of it.Trim one end at 45%.Now slide this into the fork seal and with a sawing action,move it all the way around the seal.When you get the feel of it,you will be able to feel bits of dirt in the seal.When you do,pull it out and the dirt will come with it.Do this a few times.This will work if the seal are not cactus and is cheaper than a rebuild.Hope this is of some help.

Need to change the fork oil on a 2001 honda sabre 1100

do not compress the fork springs you must take the pressure off the springs by jacking up front end of the bic this will take some of the pressure off but be careful when removing the fork bolts there will still be some spring pressure there. drain all oil out of the shocks then you have to find out the right amount of oil and grade you need for your specific bic. hope this helps
