How much fork oil do I put in each leg of my zephyr 1100


Is you have taken the forks apart and changed the fork bushes, ie forks are totally dry, you will need about 520ml in each fork leg. When refilling and will the springs removed, add about 550ml per leg, the stroke the forks numerous times to expel any excess air. Then with forks compressed the oil level should be adjusted to 119mm from the top of the fork to the oil, ie the air gap to the oil. The add springs and spacers and reassemble.

The front forks go down to far on my fxst 2004 nightrain


If you are saying that your front suspension is too soft, you can change the fork oil in the front forks to a heavier viscosity. I think Harley recommends Type E fork oil. I've found that PJB 30 wt. fork oil works best for me.

Since I'm not familiar with the newer forks, I'll have to recommend that you ask the dealer how to drain and refill the forks and how much oil to put back in them. There are usually two amounts of oil to put in the forks. One amount is a "dry" amount to add when you disassemble the forks and then refill them. The "wet" amount is for when you simply drain the forks and then refill them. Naturally, the "wet" amount will be less than the "dry" amount.

Sorry I couldn't give you more information but my expertise is the earlier model Harley bikes.

Good Luck
Steve

How do u fill the down tubes on a hoda shadow


First of all do not add oil to your front forks with out draining them first. If you over fill your forks with oil you will damage your forks. To change your oil in your forks, first center stand the bike and lift the front wheel by putting a jack under the motor. Remove the front wheel and axle and put a pie tin under the fork tube. Reach up into the bottom of the fork tube with a hex key and loosen the screw but do not remove. Now take the air pressure cross over tube off, this will allow you to unscrew the fork tops( On some bikes you may have to put a towel on the tank and unbolt the handle bars to get them out of the way.). Pull the screws out of the bottom of the forks and gently pull down the oil should come out now. If you need new fork seals take the lower tubes off and replace(You may need to take off the fender and hang the calipers with wires.). Turn the lowers over and dump out the oil and reinstall fork lowers. Snug up screws and sealing washers on the bottom of forks you can not tighten till you put on fork tops. Now pour in measured amount of oil, again do not over fill. Put on fork tops and air crossover tube. Now tighten screws on bottom of fork. Finish reassembling bike.

Front suspension must be refilled with oil, how to do it?


There is a drain plug at the bottom of each fork. Just drain them and put the plugs back in then take the caps off the top of each and put in the propper amount of fork oil. You will need actual fork oil, so when you get it ask the shop how many cc's of oil to put in each fork.

Can you tell me how much oil to put in an en500 forks please, Andy


If you never have put for oil into a set of forks, yes you have to check both forks. I would suggest treading lightly. If you have time and a place to block the bike as well as a manual you can do it.
Are you adding oil because the seals are leaking or do you have excessive stiction in the fork? If the seals are leaking, you will have to pull the forks and add new seal and put in exactly the right amount oil.
Do you have air seat or is it a closed fork?
For you en500 you should have a volume of oil in your service manual.

We put new fork seals in USD front forks of a 93 ZRX 250 now they are too hard and we cant seem to soften them up We put 400mls oil in any less they sit too low can any one help please


What weight oil? 10w or 15w is good for fork oil. Also check that your valve that controls the oil passing back and forth is not obstructed inside the fork tube.
