Oil capacity?

Should be 3.5 Liters / quarts with the filter change. Put in 3 liters then top up as needed to get the level to the top of the viewing window.

To check your oil, bike should be level, on it's center stand, engine should NOT be running!

Any oil viscosity between 10w30 and 20w50 will work just fine. Smaller numbers if the weather's cooler and/or you only do short rides. Bigger numbers for hot weather and longer rides.

Need to put oil in forks of a 1985 yamaha xj 700

Should be drain screws at the bottom, close to the axel shaft, and one giant bolt on the top of the fork where it comes out of the triple clamp. Remove the lower to drain, replace it. Refill by removing the upper. If I recall correctly, it wants 250ml of fork oil (typically a special 5w oil you need to buy at a motorcycle shop DO NOT USE ENGINE OIL!)
