The drain plug will be either 14mm, 17mm, or 19mm. Probably a 17mm. Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. The manual will help you on more than just oil changes. Most of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language. There is a GXSR1100 that will use the same oil as the GSX1100. Most of the two engines are identical. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Specs on how much fork oil is needed for a 1995 gsxr 1100 w

This volume of oil is shown in the service manual, on one of its specifications pages. If you are going to work on your cycle, you need to get a service manual.

For a bike of this age, there should be a free download of the manual. Find it by googling "service manual download Suzuki 1995 GSX-R 1100w."

Following this advice, I found this link to a free download; After downloading the manual I found the fork oil capacity on page 1-11, 425 ml.

However, I think you will want to know how to get the oil in and out of the forks as well. This info is found on pages 7-22 to 7-29.

Enjoy the experience.

2000 Kawasaki ZRX 1100 fuel coming from breather hose

Hi, Anonymous you're getting ready to go riding you pull out the dipstick to check your oil level and are greeted with the unmistakable smell of gasoline. What happens next depends on the following:
1. You have experienced this before and do not start the engine but do change your oil and filter leaving it 1 quart low until the engine reaches operating temperature then top off as necessary.
2. The amount of time your bike has been sitting, since the last time the engine was running.
3. The amount of gas and contaminants in the tank.
4. The oil pump location, exterior or interior.
5. The condition of your petcock gasket/seal/diaphragm.
If your gas tank was low and you start the engine probably nothing you would notice but if your gas tank was full and you start your engine the oil/gas mixture can blow into your air filter, come streaming out of your crankcase breather hose, and launch your oil tank cap followed by a blast of oil. The mess can be minor or you need to call a Hazmat team for assistance. This will also happen if you overfill your oil tank.
Next is the how and why gas can get into your oil tank/system:
a. The vacuum petcock rubber/diaphragm fails, which allows gas to flow from the fuel tank through the petcock, through the vacuum line into the intake manifold, then into the combustion chamber, where it seeps past the piston rings and into the bottom end.
3. Non-vacuum petcocks that are not turned to the off position will patiently wait until contaminants from the gas tank build up in between the carburetor needle and seat breaking the seal thus inviting gas to enter the combustion chamber eventually finding it's way into the bottom end and the oil tank.
4. Bottom line if you're not going to ride your bike for a while turn off the petcock.

How to Replace front fork seals on Suzuki GSXR 1100 K model

Remove front wheel, brake calliper etc . Undo top and bottom yoke pinch bolts and slide out fork leg. Clamp chrome tube in a soft jawed vice and remove top nut carefully as it is under some load and will fly away, (but its not too much you can hold it with your hand). Tip out remaining oil slowly so as to not loose spacer on top of main fork spring. Clamp lower aluminium leg in vice by calliper mounts and remove allen screw in extreme end (if the wheel spindle was in you couldnt see it) This is the only part that might be a problem as the inner end may turn. An impact wrench may help or if not a simple broom handle shoved up the other end is often enough. Once this bolt is removed the leg will split. Now lever out the dust cover to reveal the wire circlip holding in the fork seal. Remove the clip and lever out carefully the old fork seal. Fit new seal using a large socket and mallet or something similar and reassemble in reverse order, not forgetting to add correct amount of new fork oil.

I have a 1992 gsxr 750 just recently changed the spark plugs and wires for them. i also had a gas leak and fixed that but i now have an oil leak i think and cant find were its leaking from. while im...

I had a similar issue on a 1996 CBR 900. Check to make sure the gas lines are on tight (sealed). If any air is getting in it will cause the problems your experiencing.
As to the oil leak. Why do you "think" you have a leak?
