How much fork oil do I put in


Dave, I usually measure the amount of fork oil that drains out of each fork and replace with that same amount. In my experience this is not necessarily a critical spec. All bikes are different, however. Many owners and mechanics will experiment with differing amounts and weights of oil. You may consult your dealership and try to get within a couple ounces of spec.

I NEED THE OIL CAPACITY FOR THE 35 MM FORKS ON A 1986 FXR TOURING MODEL.


The FXR had the same front fork tubes as the Sportster. Harley-Davidson Type "E" fork oil is recommended. The fluid capacity dry (after disassembly) is 6.4 ounces. The fluid capacity wet (drain and refill) is 5.4 ounces.

Good Luck

The front forks go down to far on my fxst 2004 nightrain


If you are saying that your front suspension is too soft, you can change the fork oil in the front forks to a heavier viscosity. I think Harley recommends Type E fork oil. I've found that PJB 30 wt. fork oil works best for me.

Since I'm not familiar with the newer forks, I'll have to recommend that you ask the dealer how to drain and refill the forks and how much oil to put back in them. There are usually two amounts of oil to put in the forks. One amount is a "dry" amount to add when you disassemble the forks and then refill them. The "wet" amount is for when you simply drain the forks and then refill them. Naturally, the "wet" amount will be less than the "dry" amount.

Sorry I couldn't give you more information but my expertise is the earlier model Harley bikes.

Good Luck

Frount fork oil amount in a HD XL1200C


"wet" = 9.0 ounces
"dry" = 10.2 ounces
If you simply drain the oil then readd the oil, it is considered a "wet" oil change.

If you disassemble and clean all the components and then add oil, it is considered a "dry" oil change.

Good Luck. Steve

I have a harley davidson XL883H and need to know what the fron fork oil level should be when the forks are fully extended?


Remove the small plugs at the bottom of each fork slider and drain the forks. Do this by working the forks up and down until the forks are empty. Then, refill the forks with the proper amount of oil. Since you are not disassembling the forks and cleaning them out, you should use the "wet" measure of oil instead of the "dry" measurement.

Since you didn't tell me exactly what year model 883 you have, if the fork tubes are 39mm tubes (measure the top tube) use the following amount of oil. I use 30 wt. fork oil. If this is too stiff, drop down to 20 weight.

883 Hugger --- 10.7 ounces
all others --- 9.0 ounces

That's the only ones I have information for at this time.

its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.
