SOURCE: Front fork oil capacity

Hi Lukepentcof.

its 350cc or 11.8 ounces in the Clyma book, but that's for a 1986 onwards model. you can vary the amount you use to suit your style of riding anyways. I doubt it would be that far from the mark.

SOURCE: spark plugs

You need to remove the cowling (Remove all allen keys 2 x 8mm bolds under light, 2x push type secures)

Then remove the bolt at the rear of the tanks slide the tank back and rest carefully. (I managed this with out disconnecting it)

One at a time remove HT lead, using 16mm spark plug socket with about 50mm long extention and ratchet remove and replace the spark plug. (When tightning remember with new spark plugs there is a crush washer so do it up as you can comfortably then a 1/4 turn more.also the spark plug removing tool is to long so don't bother with this) Then move to the next plug

Then replace tank and cowling all done. (This is a good opertunity to wash the screen cowling and frame which it is all in pieces)

This is approx a 2 hour job.

SOURCE: 2004 honda shadow 600 VLX leaking fork seal bike

The seal under the dirt seal on the fork was leaking when I picked the bike up from the owner. left the fork oil under the dirt seal kept bouncing the forks up and down for 4 days the seal got soft from the fork oil so I pulled the dirt seal up then cleaned the fork oil under it with a rag then checked it for leaks then pushed dirt seal back down in the groove and its not leaking now 200 miles and still dry.

SOURCE: Fork Oil CBR954

There are three most common weights of fork oil. 5W is a light oil for a smoother ride, 10W is a heaver oil for stiffer suspension and 15W is mainly used for a stiffer ride such as racing. I have found 20W and 25W oils but they are not that common.
If you are a pleasure rider 5W or 10W would be the right oil for you. If you are always "in the twisties" and riding the limits of the bike, go with the 15W.

Install fork seals Honda shadow 650

Get a big long tray, like a paper hanger tray, or longer, Get the fork in there and pull the end off, a lot of forks are different, so I will generalize. some have a drain plug in the bottom, either way, get the oil out, pull the spring out, pull the shiny part out of the bottom, replace your seal, when going back together, the spring has to be depressed and the nut spun back on, with the pre-measured oil in there, I would get a book to explain this better, it is kinda hard to do without being there. I'm not sure what you have in the bottom for a keeper, but they are different. Hope this helps.
