Just drain each leg and replace the same amount that you drain from each leg. This only works if the legs are not leaking.

Front forks drop when moving my 2000 valkyrie from a parked position to a position to start to ride noticeabley about an inch mferguson9@cinci.rr.com


hi although i canot see your bike i am fairly sure what you mean is that your forks sag about 25mm, this is normal, sag is a tecnical term for the sinking of your forks, while seting front suspension preload, this is the amount of tension you put on the fork spring by turning the adjusting nut on the top of each fork, it is most important you first note how much static sag you have , if you have any further points please contact me

Honda FMX 650 - quantity of hydraulic oil


The best way,is to drain a fork leg into a container, and measure the amount. however if you cant do that, start of with about 100ml in each leg, test them out, if to soft, you can always add a little more oil. from memory, a 250ml bottle of fork oil was enough to do both legs on most bikes.

It seems that i have lost some oil from my forks due to a weeping seal, inevitably i will have to have these changed, but at the moment my suspension is spongy, and seems to tilt sharply when turning at...


The problem with topping up is that if your fork seals are leaking the benefit is short lived. There are set amounts of suspension oil required, as you don't know how much is already in the fork leg it would be impossible to judge how much to top up with. Unless you use the air gap method (140mm for 1996 >) but you would need to get the fork straight to measure the air gap correctly. The bike needs sorting properly.

Need to know fork fluid amount for 93 zr1100


The correct way is to remove the tops of the forks and pull out the springs,then fully compress the fork legs and fill them to 150mm or 6inches from the top. Refit springs and tops and you are ready to ride.

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
