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!

How do I putt fork oil in my 88 1100f susuki


Hi

Remove the front axle, the wheel and undo the clamps holding the forks, there are two sets usually held on my allen key bolts.

Slide the forks out of the tubes and empty the fork oil into a container. Refill (usually 8oz but check manual) with the correct grade of oil and slide the fork legs back into the tubes. Tighten the clamps and refit wheel and axle. Test the forks first by pushing down on them.

Hope this helps, please vote for me.

I need to know the oil capacity of the front forks on my 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800.


FORK OIL
• Place the front fork vertically without spring.
• Compress it fully.
• Pour specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube.
Capacity (each leg): 490 ml (16.6/17.3 US/lmp oz)
99000-99044-L01: SUZUKI FORK OIL L01
or an equivalent fork oil
• Move the inner rod slowly with the special tool ten times and
more until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
09940-52841: Inner rod holder
NOTE:
Refill front fork oil up to the top of the outer tube so that bubbles
are visible while bleeding air.
• Refill specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube again. Move the outer tube up and down several strokes
until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
• Keep the front fork vertically and wait 5 – 6 minutes.
NOTE:
* Always keep oil level over the cartridge top end, or air may
enter the cartridge during this procedure.
* Take extreme care so as to pump out air completely.
• Hold the front fork vertically and adjust fork oil level with the
special tool.
NOTE:
When adjusting the fork oil level, compress the outer tube fully
without the fork spring.
Fork oil level: 153 mm (6.02 in)
