If you have never taken your bike front-end off for any type of maintenance, you better get a friend who can show you step by step process, as it requires mtre just taking the fork off the bike once you get into the for to replace the seals and putting the fork oil into it.

HI WEATHER YOU NEED TO SPLIT THE FORKS OR NOT, YOU SHOULD, SOME OF THE OLDER HONDAS REMOVING THE LOWER FORK BOLT, ACCESABLE WHEN THE SPIINDLE HAS BEEN REMOVED, THIS WILL DRAIN THE OIL OUT OF THE FORK LEG THERE WILL BE A WASHER OR SEALING RING ON THIS SO BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOOSE IT WHEN YOU REMOVE THE BOLT, USING A BOWL OR CONTAINER TO CATCH THE OIL, UNDO THE BOLT IN THE LOWER FORK LEG, AFTER ALL THE OIL HAS BEEN REMOVED, PULL DOWN ON THE FORK TUBE IF THIS PULLS OUT OF THE LEG THEN YOU CAN COMPLETE THE JOB QUITE EASY, REMOVE DUST SEAL, CIRCLIP AND OIL SEAL, THE LATER WILL BE QUITE TIGHT IN THE LEG, WHEN YOU EASEMBLE THE FORK YOU WILL HAVE TO UNDO THE TOP FORK NUT TO REPLENISH TTHE OIL

How much oil do you put in the front forks when changing the fork seals on a honda fireblade 900 rrw model on a t reg


It's hard to get specs in mls or cc these days so I'll let you in on a BIG secret(don't tell everyone,hush hush,& we stay wiser than others,promse not to tell, cross your heart).

Ok here we go- NO this ISN'T a joke so listen carefully.

Set the oil levels in the front forks

with the cartridges blead(simply draw up & down on the damper rod & you can feel the air bleeding out),

& before you re-fit the springs,

With the forks fully compressed
,
The fork oil level should be 100-110mm from the top.
This applies to basically all forks(except-a few like MX showa on certain RMs' & the new kawasaki 250 MXer.)
Hope this helps
Regards Andrew

Front fork seals on 1999 cbr 900 leaking


hello and welcome
with the cold weather these seals are very apt to show leakage especially with age. the rubber seals become harder in material and will leak. the cold just helps with that and is more apt to do so then.
there is no good product that will work on these and fix them well enough to where they wont leak again soon. the best fix is the get the seals replaced. as the temps warm the leaking may stop. but as another cold front comes the seals will leak again. this can possibley throw off the balance of fluid in the forks and can be damageing. so again definately reccomend getting the seals changed at the earliest conveinience. thank you.

99 CBR 900 Front fork seals


If the seal has been cracked by the cold weather it should be replaced. For someone mechanicly inclined and with the proper tools this is not a hard job. For the novice it can be one of those times you could have sent it to the shop and spent less time and money, and gotten better results....
As to a seal conditioner, the seals today are generally made of synthetic material. No "conditioner" will work. If the seal is made of rubber you have a 90% chance that a product called 'MARVEL MYSTERY OIL' will solve the problem. This prouduct was created in 1917 and marketed in 1923. Google the product name for more hystory and uses today. Basicly, the oil causes rubber to swell. This tightens seals and thus fixes the problem. Most any good auto parts store has this stuff on the shelf. By the way, if the bike was purchased new, wouldn't this be a warranty repair?
