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.

SOURCE: fork oil level

Forks can get pretty complicated. If they have been worked on it is not just re-filling with oil to a certain level. That would be the case if the seals leak a bit and all you are doing is adding oil to replace what has gotten past the seals. I am giving you a site where you can download a free factory service manual. Everything on servicing the forks and the rest of the bike is in the manual. There is a 2003 manual on the site. Your 2004 forks are the same as the 2003. All other service procedures are also the same. Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. The site may take up to 20 seconds to load the complete list of manuals. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

SOURCE: amount of oil in forks

The forks have to be bled correctly, then oil filled to the correct level by oil level (height) measurement. You need the service manual for your model if you are not familiar with the procedure. Since you asked the "amount" instead of "level" in millimeters - I assume you need the manual.

How to change fork seals in a 2008 fxd


To change the fork seals in a 2004 FXD you will need to remove the forks from the bike and then drain the oil and then remove the dust seal and the retaining ring and spacer from the top of the fork and then remove the Allen head screw from the bottom of the fork to release the fork tube and then using the fork tube like a slide hammer drive the upper bushing, seal and spacer out the top of the slider. While apart you should also inspect the rings and bushings etc. You will need a special seal driver to reinstall the upper bushing, seal and spacer and then you will need to accurately refill the fluid to the correct level/amount. FXD/FXDL uses 10.6 OZ or 0.31 cc of Harley-Davidson TYPE E FORK OIL (Part No. HD-99884-80) and the level measurement is 6.69 inches or 169.9 mm. Be very careful and accurate with the oil level as too much or too little will adversely affect the function, ride and steering of the bike. It is best to use a fork oil level gauge and set it so that the ring will sit 6.69 inches or 169.9 mm from the end of the tube and secure it at that position. If your gauge has a plunger cylinder on it push the plunger on the cylinder all the way in and then with the fork tube bottomed in the fork slider, insert the tube until the ring rests flat on top of the fork tube and pull the plunger out to suck up excess oil from the fork tube. If no oil is sucked up into the gauge cylinder you need to add more oil until there is enough excess oil in the fork tube to have an excess amount sucked out of the fork tube. In this manner the gauges and cylinder will accurately set the fork oil level. If you have a vacuum operated gauge such as with a tool that attaches to a vacuum brake bleeder you will set the tool at 6.69 inches or 169.9mm as with the other type of tool and operate it the same way to remove excess oil to a precise and accurate specified fork oil level which is very important as an incorrect oil level can adversely affect motorcycle handling.

2005 Yamaha YZ 85 fork oil capacity


Standard oil level:
90 mm (3.54 in)
Extent of adjustment:
80 ~ 120 mm (3.15 ~ 4.72 in)
From top of outer tube with
inner tube and damper rod fully
compressed without spring.

CAUTION:
Adjust the oil level in 5 mm (0.2 in) incre-
ments or decrements. Too low oil level
causes the front fork to produce a noise at
full rebound or the rider to feel some pres-
sure on his hands or body. Alternatively,
too high oil level will develop unexpectedly
early oil lock with the consequent shorter
front fork travel and deteriorated perfor-
mance an characteristics. Therefore, adjust
the front fork within the specified range.

I need to know the oil capacity of the front forks on my 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800.


FORK OIL
• Place the front fork vertically without spring.
• Compress it fully.
• Pour specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube.
Capacity (each leg): 490 ml (16.6/17.3 US/lmp oz)
99000-99044-L01: SUZUKI FORK OIL L01
or an equivalent fork oil
• Move the inner rod slowly with the special tool ten times and
more until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
09940-52841: Inner rod holder
NOTE:
Refill front fork oil up to the top of the outer tube so that bubbles
are visible while bleeding air.
• Refill specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube again. Move the outer tube up and down several strokes
until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
• Keep the front fork vertically and wait 5 – 6 minutes.
NOTE:
* Always keep oil level over the cartridge top end, or air may
enter the cartridge during this procedure.
* Take extreme care so as to pump out air completely.
• Hold the front fork vertically and adjust fork oil level with the
special tool.
NOTE:
When adjusting the fork oil level, compress the outer tube fully
without the fork spring.
Fork oil level: 153 mm (6.02 in)

What is the fork oil level after replacing seals


Here is a manual for your bike....search for English parts of it.....
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/HUSQVARNA/CR%20125-_M

The manual has directions for taking out parts, putting in SAE 5 or SAE 7.5 fork oil, and then measuring the distance from the top of the fork tube to the top of the oil. It should be 3.5 inches. That doesn't sound right, but maybe that is with the forks compressed, the directions may be indicating that. You could judge by the amount you drained out of the forks. Here are the directions in the manual.......
OIL FORK LEVEL
For the regular fork operation,
both legs must be provided with
the necessary oil quantity.
Remove the forkrods from the
fork to check the oil level inside
the forkrods. Work as follows:
- remove the power rod caps;
- remove springs from the stems
letting the oil drop into the
latter;
- bring forks to stroke end;
- check that the level is at
distance “A” below the upper
limit of rods.
(distance A is 3.5 inches)

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.
