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.

Change fork seals


you need to undo the pinch bolts on the yolks and remove the front wheel & mudguard. Undo the bolys retaining the brake caliper and swing it towards the frame downtube, secure it with string. Withdraw each fork leg and clean up with a soft rag. On each leg, remove the top bolt (slowly to release spring pressure) and pour out the fork oil and discard it. Pour in a small amount of parrafin and swill it around a bit to clean out any residue. Remove the dustcap or gaiter and put it on one side. You will now see the fork oil seal. If it has a circlip then remove it, if not, then don't bother. Prise out old seal carefully making sure not to mark the soft alloy of the lower leg or the chrome on the stantion. Rub a little fork oil onto the new seal and carefully slide it over the stantion, pushing it all the way down. Use a piece of wood to firmly push the seal into the lower leg until it sits squarely and fully into place. Replace circlip if necessary and refit dust cover. Refill each fork leg with 142 ml of 10 wieght fork oil and replace top bolt. pump the leg a few times to settle the oil and then refit the legs in the reverse order of removal. When done, pump the forks a few times, go for a cuppa whilst it settles and then you are all ready to go.

Fluid levels for front forks on 800 vtec 02


hi, the fork oil level on an 2002-2004 vfr 800 is measured by air gap, with the forks fully compressed with the springs fitted, the air gap between the top of the fork and the oil level should measure 100mm.

Starting problem, clocks light up engin turns softly. not starting. please assist. contact pieterserenier@yahoo.com please if anyone can assist, its a friends bike.


make sure that your battery is fully charged to have enough cranking juice. It happened to my VFR as well, headlights & clock worked but not enough juice to crank. I had this problem with my OEM honda battery, and eventually replaced with aftermarket battery with higher CCA (Cold Cranking Amps). A good thing esp if you live in cold countries

what year is the bike? make sure the comp screws are adjusted right in clockwise, then wind it 11 cicks anti clockwise. if it is still too soft add a bit more oil. about 1 fluid oz to each fork leg up to 2 fluid ozs. as long as you have the right amount of oil in the forks in the first place. if this is still too soft you will need to put heavier sprins in. hope this helps. cheers kev.

VFR400R NC24 front forks are soft. Should they be this soft?


i prepared it to be soft for comfortable riding but if you think that it is to soft try to add some air on it, but check the oil seal of the fork if it has no leak.
