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.

What is fork oil capacity

This is the answer by LostReader that I've found in Google:

I'm fairly certain the stock is 7.5 weight oil.

If starting fresh you'll need almost a quart for each fork, the correct amount isn't determined by volume, it's determined by measurement.

60 mm from the top, spacer installed, fork fully compressed. Or was that with spring installed....? maybe someone can confirm....

you need one of these to correctly measure fork oil.

On ebay you can get a service manual for cheap from a Canadian seller who ships worldwide.

Tied bike down in ute without using a fork block. Checked bike today and found both forks had leaked oil. I think bike tied down on way home has caused the forks to leak? Have the seals gone? or have they...

It's possible you may have leaked some oil, but first things first, clean the heck out of them and ride it around again to see if you are STILL leaking oil. If you have to top them up, there's a few methods out there, one guy I knew used a meter stick to measure the oil in the forks, but if you are going to be in there, you might as well drain the oil and start over with the correct amount of fluid. I hope this helps a little. Good luck.

The forks need to come apart.
I highly recommend getting the factory service and repair manual.
You will need a seal driver tool, and measure the correct amount of fork oil. This isn't a simple job, and it's why I recommend the book.

How do you replace fork oil and what do you do with air valves on 1981 kawasaki kz650 csr front forks? Do you pour in new fork oil and then insert air through the air nozzle on each individual front fork?...

Your owners manual will help if you have one. There used to be drain plugs under each fork. The air valves help suspension smoothen the rides more.

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..

KX 125 (2003) motorcycle

its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.
