Question about Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard Motorcycles
We are to the point where we are ready to change the fork seals, after that what are the steps to refill the fork oil and where do I fill it? Thanks!
Make sure that there is no weight on front end carefully remove the big nuts on the top of forks they will have some tension on them because of the springs remove springs and pour fork oil in make sure u use the right grade of oil and do not over fill.as this will cause to much hydrulicing and blow ur new seals it is important that u get the oil level right good luck

SOURCE: Fork oil level: 2006 KDX 200
This all depends on what size forks you have, but a good rule of thumb is 120ml. After that then what you want to do is to ride the bike and make adjustments to your front end until your liking.

I don't blame you for wanting to do this yourself. Be sure to use a harley filter and harley oil.
Drain the oil, replace o ring on drain plug, replace drain plug, remove oil filter, fill oil filter with 20/50 harley davidson oil and replace filter being careful not to overtighten, fill oil tank with the bike upright to the fill line on the dipstick. Take the bike for a short ride and check the fluid level while warm.

SOURCE: Front fork seal is leaking
Yep, drain the fork oil, raise the front wheel in the air, remove the front wheel and axle. The nut to remove the lower leg is at the bottom, hidden by the axle. If it still leaks after seal replacement your fork tubes and lower leg sliders are worn out. Reassemble and remove the top fork cap. Pour in the correct cc of fork oil and ride.

55 ft lbs on front 95 to 105 on rear ft lbs...Fork Cap just tighten it down real tight. I never bother to torque them. they have a lock washer. the one to the rear for some reason ALWAYS gets loose and should be checked say every 1000 miles. Never found one that came off they just get looser where as the front one stays tight.
