How do I change the fork seals on a 2008 Honda CRF 250 r? Do I use a special tool? Oil? How much oil? Thanks so much for your expertise. Do I put equal amounts of oil on each side? Inner tube- outer tube?

Hi,replacing the seal is quite easy,although it will sound complicated,jack up or lift the bike off the ground so that the front wheel is in the air(about 12-14 inches should be enough,remove the front wheel from the bike,remove each fork leg,this is done by undoing the bolts(4 on each leg)the front fork is quite easy to work on just do one at a time,remove the dust cover from the top of the staunchion tube(larger diameter tube),beneath that dust cover you should see a retaining clip that holds the seal in place,remove the retaining clip(and dont lose it),the seal is now ready to remove,the easiest way that i know to do this is to force a screwdriver through the body of the seal,you may need to hit the screwdriver with a hammer as some seal have a tin backing plate,put a hole through the seal on each side of the fork leg taking care not to damage the chrome of the fork leg,then use the screwdriver to lever the seal out of the fork leg,to reinstall the new seal,put a smear of grease or oil around the outside of the new seal,slide the new seal down the fork leg and seat it squarely into the fork tube,very carefully tap the new seal into place being very carefull not to damage the outer surface,i use a small piece of dowell type timber to do this as the wood doesnt damage the seal surface,i use a small ballpeen hammer to tap the wooden dowell,once you have the seal seated down the tube you should be able to see the groove for the retaining clip,reinstall the retaining clip making sure it is seated corectly,replace the dust cover,if you are going to replce the fork oil or top it up do this once the fork leg is back in the bike,repeat the whole procedure for the other fork leg,once you have done the fork seals reinslall the fork legs back into the bike and refit the front wheel,to top up the oil in each leg,simply undo the large cap on the end of the fork leg,you may have to remove the handlebars to do this,be carefull as the cap will be spring loaded and can easily fly off if you are not ready for it,top up or fill with the correct weight oil for your bike(normally a 10w oil),check with your local honda agent for the correct quantity,normally between 400-500 mls,this all sounds quite complicated but is actually quite easy and can be done with a minimal of tools,each fork shold take about 1/2 hr to do...hope this is a help to you

These are twin chamber USD cartridge forks. You cannot just magically lift a fork seal over an axle lug on an upside down fork. They don't stretch like rubber bands.These forks have to be completely disassembled to change seals. The inner cylinders have to be removed and opened to change inner chamber oil and then bled properly. This requires a detailed instruction manual and a good bit of specialty tools. The genuine Honda owner's service manual is the easiest to understand. It's quite complicated.

Neddz solution is completely wrong for the CRF 250x. If you cant understand the user manual take it to the dealer.

I have a 2003 Honda CR250r and recently replaced my fork seals and fork oil. I checked the manual and the oil level says 325-405 depending on stiffeness wanted. I went for 375 and now my forks are pretty...


Hi, Robinpereira my gut tells me you either your fork oil is too heavy or you put too much in. Drain the forks and measure what comes out if it;s way over specs adjust as necessary if it's exactly what you put in then replace 350cc and see how that works.

How much transmission fluid do you put in a 2004 honda crf250r?


None ... the transmission and the engine share the engine oil. Use the oil recommended by Honda for the best results with your CRF 250. Change at the recommended intervals of sooner.

I hope this helps you ...

HOW DO I TAKE SEALS OUT OF THE FORKS


The forks need to come apart.
I highly recommend getting the factory service and repair manual.
You will need a seal driver tool, and measure the correct amount of fork oil. This isn't a simple job, and it's why I recommend the book.

Fork Oil Question


Gays????
No fork oil should destroy seals. I wouldn't go crazy on brand, as this isn't a full blown motocross bike. Use what you can get easily. Changing it is the important part, as many people never do.

Front fork is in very bad state on 1998 beta techno trials


Hi, Leecoggan for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.
