SOURCE: fork and engine oil for kawasaki kle 400 from 1993

Get the fork oil from the Kawasaki dealer and he will give you the right oil and tell you how much is needed. The gearbox oil is 10w40, any major brand is fine. I think your bike has a oil dipstick? If not then the oil capacity should be on the casing by the oil fill. Worst case, ask the dealer while you are there!
Best wishes and I hope this helps.

Please rate this solution. Thanks Robert!

Correct measure fork oil?

Normally, the fork oil level is set with the spring out, and the fork fully compressed. Fill the fork to 110-120mm from the top.

GPZ-1100 1995. Changing oil in engine and fork. How much fork oil to use? And what oil is better to use in engine? Thank you.

level of fork oil is more important than the should be 120mm from the fork top when fully compressed without the springs.
But if you want an amount then you're looking at 470cc although this will depend on wether the fork internals were stripped and dry before refilling. That's why using level is a better guide.

Engine oil for the 11 is 10w40

How much and what grade oil goes in the forks of a EN500

You have to get the book on this one to redo your forks, If you are replacing a seal or just topping them off, you shouldn't have a leak, but the fork oil is special from any bike shop and the amount is kinda critical, so find a book with the amount of oil needed. Usually you would remove the forks, lay them in a big long pan, pull the ends, and pull the springs and seals out, squeeze them back together and fill them with oil. Hope this helps.

Fork Oil measurements

You will need 150cc of 5W20 oil for the forks. You can buy the oil pretty much at any place that sells oil. It's the same oil as the dealer has but MUCH less expensive.
...glad to see there are more like you keeping the old Z's on the road.
Have Fun...Ride Safe..
