How do you service and adjust the front fork suspension... Way stiff!!


Fork adjustment varies from bike to bike. Some have no adjustment at all, some have screws that you turn in and out, some are adjusted/aided by air. Some people change the weight (viscosity) of the fork oil, fit firmer or looser springs etc. Fork adjustment and settings depend on the riders size, handling and bike style so there really is no "stock setting, one size fits all".
What you consider way stiff may be ideal for me but too soft for someone else.
The best way to find out how to adjust the settings (if it is possible) is find a forum online relating to your bike as adjustments of this sort is a fairly hot topic of discussion.
I hope that is of some help.

My soft tail rides really stiff on rough roads. What can I do to soften the ride. Seems like the front forks are stiff. Just had shocks serviced.


As far as the rear suspension, a softtail won't ride a smooth as one with a swingarm, as the softtail has less travel.

On the front end, Harley has three different "thicknesses" of fork oil, light, medium, and heavy, which gives different suspension dampening.

If the front forks are too stiff, you could try a lighter fork oil.

The front supension on my bike barley moves really stiff but yet bike is in a good condition


Hi paul..sounds to me you have to much fork oil in the forks mate.or you have the wrong grade oil in the fork legs...or if u have air valves on top of your fork stems.theyve been pumped up to much.but that would blow your seals..1st off.id drain the fork oil out .then replace with the correct grade oil.and oil level in each fork leg.

I have chrome front forks and they seem to be getting mushy and make a clicking noise when I stop hard


The "clicking" noise you are hearing when you make a "hard stop", is the springs inside the fork compressing. This is not unusual. You can change your fork oil viscosity to stiffen the forks but they may be too stiff once you've done it, The only way to tell is try it.

There is a small screw or bolt on the down low on the fork lower slider. Take this screw out and work the front end up and down, The fork oil will be pumped out the front end. This makes a terrible mess so don't do it in your living room.

Once you have the oil out of the front end, it's best to lift the bike off the ground. Remove the top cap from each tube and refill the fork tubes with the proper amount of oil for a "wet" oil change. Sorry but I don't have that information but it will be somewhere around 10.2 ounces. Check to make sure for your year model. I put 30 wt. fork oil in my FXDWG and the forks are a bit stiff but that's how I like them. Try it and if it's too stiff, you'll just have to change it back to say 20wt or maybe Honda might have a 25 wt. oil. Do one side of the forks at a time.

What's the correct oil-level and grade on front fork??


Std fork oil grade all around is 10W, depending on bike usage and preference, it can go down to 5W or up to 30W.
Oil level usually run from 175 -250 cc per fork, too much oil will cause fork to be stiff, not enough can damage fork seal, so go by trial and error but the amount should not run far from above numbers. Good luck!

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.
