SOURCE: How much fork oil in a 2002 KTM 400 SX

White power allow a 110mm air gap with springs out and fork compressed as a general guide ,adjust from there according to prefrance . Thats probably,from memory about 600ml or so.If you overfill the leg ,cut the tip off the fork oil bottle , mark out on a clear piece of fuel hose 110 mm from one end of hose with a permanent marker, attach other end to the tip of the now empty fork oil bottle nipple, squeeze bottle,insert hose down to 110mm mark,take hand pressure off bottle and WWHHAAALLLAAA!!!!!!!!. Magically the excess oil is sucked back up into bottle.....Don't you just love the forces of nature. : ] ride on DB ......Hope this gets you out of trouble ....Flabbycat

SOURCE: Amount of fork oil for a XR 250 1985 model with 10

13.4 ounces in each one. Or, with the fork spring removed and the forks compressed all the way, the oil level should be 150 mm (5.91") from the top of the fork tube.

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.

How much fork oil do I put in


Dave, I usually measure the amount of fork oil that drains out of each fork and replace with that same amount. In my experience this is not necessarily a critical spec. All bikes are different, however. Many owners and mechanics will experiment with differing amounts and weights of oil. You may consult your dealership and try to get within a couple ounces of spec.

What is the spec for oil in the front forks on a 2004 suzuki rm 250


If you have the stock valving, I would run 2.5w Motorex in the damper to compensate for the stiff feel stock, and thicker oil in the spring chamber such as Mobil1 5w20 to allow the oil lock ring to do its job on bottom-outs. I'm at 375ml in the spring chamber and I weight 155lb.
