Buy some measuring cups up to about 13oz ...before you start on the first fork, release air pressure then take out drain bolt and let it fill up, then pump the fork up and down to squirt out the last little bit.... you"ll get a ball park figure this way. I use ten weight oil and it seems fine, oh and you dont have to buy the expensive stuff from the dealer, any transmission fluid will work.. if you decide to fill it with air be very careful if your using a gas station hose..just give it a little squirt then check. I put in about 5 psi too much and you might blow a seal. Another thing...if its never been changed before you'll find the drain bolts hard to remove..i used an allen with small extension tube to give it more leverage.

1995 Honda VFR 400 R NC30 recommended oil

Hi, Weslee21 it does no harm to the engine to change oil weight, brand, or structure ask 10 different riders and you will get 10 different answers. All oil is certified by the Oil Gods to perform under specific conditions for specific applications and any oil is better than no oil and if you're in a bind diesel oil works just fine. If your engine is air cooled never run automotive oil because normal motorcycle cylinder head temperatures run much hotter than water-cooled cylinder heads, make sure the oil is designed for motorcycles. Your owners manual recommends a specific type of oil that is designed to lubricate the engine parts to withstand the normal driving conditions the motorcycle was intended to be used for, end of story. Now for an analogy, your cars owners manual recommends using 87 octane fuel to power your engine for maximum performance and it does a wonderful job of achieving that goal. But you say 92 octane is better because it has a higher number and is more expensive, well guess what your car will not run any better and there are no long or short term benefits from running a higher octane fuel bottom line your car doesn't need it. Same thing with oil sure they make lubricants that can withstand the temperature of molten lava which you would need if you were planning to drive into an active volcano, don't waste your time and money on snake oil just use what your bike needs and your manufacturer recommends and nothing more. The oil weight grade is for ambient temperatures you expect to drive in between oil changes 20w50 covers 80% of all driving temperature conditions if your looking for a better oil that works in all temperature conditions, buy a Synthetic in the same grade from a reputable oil manufacturer I personally recommend AMSOIL just because they were the pioneers in synthetics and their load test numbers for wear put them in a class all by themselves and you can go longer and further in between oil changes. It's a little hard to find in stores but easily available online otherwise Mobil 1 is my second choice.

Did they also change oil to a heavier weight? Turbos are oil cooled and require heavier oil to extrude heat. Check with folks who did turn install and if they didn't I think an oil change is needed.

Volume of fork oil needed per fork for a 1986 VF 400 nc 13

Well, when you take off the fork make sure you empty it first before anything else then make sure that the fork pressure spring is released before changing the seals. The fork oil amount should be no more than 200 cc or no less than 190 cc

Fork seals gone on honda nsr 125

280 ml on the older models, and 320ml on the newer models.
1. you need to elevate the bike with a jack or something so the front wheel is off the ground.
2. undo the Allen bolt on the side of the fork, then proceed to take the main wheel socket bolt/bar out, so the the wheel comes off, the speedo drive will come off leave that hanging around lol.
3. take of the socket bolts attaching the brake caliper to the fork, dont leave it hanging secure it somewhere, so you dont damage the brake cable tube.
4.take handle bars off, one allen bolt on each one.
5. then unscrew the the 2 socket bolts that hold the folks on, if you follow the folks down you will see 2 socket bolts take them out. do the same on other folk.
6.then pull one folk at a time down, maybe tap it if its hard. and you will have the folk out in your hands.
7.unscrew the big socket bolt at the top of the folk out, but apply pressure, sometimes the bolt will fly off, so be careful.
8. take the big long plastic tube out along with the spring, and tip the folk upside down and pump it to get most of the oil out.
9.then go to the bottom of the folk and undo the allen bolt, when its moving around freely and not coming out put the spring in and push down and twist the allen bolt should come straight out.
10.pump it a few times and then you take the folk tube out completely and give everything a clean, it will be stiff when you get it near the top so get momentum and yank hard and it will pop out.
11. then the bottom pit of the folk that the tube goes into, if you look into it you will see the oil seal, take the cur-clip out and it should come out pretty easily.
12 give the folk tubes a rub down with fine sandpaper say 1000 grain or 800 grain, to get rid of little bumps, look carefully feel it with your hand, to see if theres any pitting, you will be able to see it, thats not good but make sure its not on the part of the tube which goes up and down the oil seal when compressed down.
13.put folk tube back in the bottom of the folk, then put spring in puch down tighten allen bolt.
14.put new oil seal on and push it down its best to use a oil seal hammer tool thingy, but if your careful you can tap it down with a hammer and something small and flat at the bottom, i used a bolt, worked well.
careful dont damage the oil seal.
15. put cur -clip back in, it should click, make sure its on the closest ridge to the oil seal.
16. put 280 ml, of oil or if you have a newer model 320ml, of fork oil in the tube, pump it a few times to get air out and oil to the bottom chamber.
17. put the spring back in and the long plastic tube, and put the top bolt on for now not to lose not to tight.
18. attach the folk to the bike again and same with the other one, make sure you align the little ridge on the top of the folk, with the top of the steering bar, the top steering the bar the folk go into last. its late lol getting confused lol. oh and when y0ou align make sure you tighten the bolts holding the folk in place.
19.then put the steering grips/bars back on and then tighten the top bolt tight cant remember the torque setting. then you know everythign from there. phew
