Hi Guys,
I know this issues were posted a long time ago, but I am looking for advise here.

I had the gear not switching problem, with my just under three year old Burgman 650 Executive last year. It left me stranded in the motorway near Manchester, UK after paying the local mechanic 200 pounds for a diagnose I decided to transport the burgman back to London another 300 plus 500 repair cost from my dealer. Suzuki paid for the part ( A new gear box), the problem occurred again after a month but went away while at the dealer. Now I am stranded again but now in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and I am really worry that my only solution is to abandon my Burgman. The dealer told me back in the UK that because it was over three years old they didn't expect Suzuki to do anything about it..... Any ideas of what I should do. The local dealer in Amsterdam told me that if they start taking the motorbike apart the cost could go over 2,500 Euros.... Maybe taking my dealer to court is my only option.... How can I prove my case so... Or is it worth trying to do the work myself... I really feel cheated by Suzuki at the moment.....

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: 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

You can use Castrol 10 fork oil which is a mediocre type or Castrol 15 for hard rebound. The quantity should not exceed 250 ml per leg. Cheers

I'm having problems with my 1987 Honda Aspencade front forks taking the bumps very hard. Is this a matter of adding fork oil? I cannot find any info on this or how to add the oil or troubleshoot this...


Do not add oil too your forks. Too much oil will jam the forks up, damaging the fork tube chrome and the fork bushings. If you suspect incorrect oil levels in the tubes, drain the tubes and refill them with the correct amount of oil. If there is too much pressure in the system, then loosen an air tube and bleed off the excess pressure. You may have a defective air pressure valve or pump. Parts that may or may not be available from the local dealer any more. More information can be found at ngwclub.com or Randaaks.com. Do not over fill your forks with oil. Let the air pressure out of your forks.Use the compressor on the GL1200 to reduce or add air pressure to the forks. The controls for the compressor are located on the dash. Turn the key the "On" position to use the compressor
