Question about 2005 kawasaki EN 500 Vulcan
Fork oil capacity
That is something you are going to have to look up from the manuf. They don't hold much, maybe 1 pt. I just did mine, 3/4 pint in each. I bought 2 bottles at the motorcycle shop and still have some left. So look up your forks, ohlins, brembo, sachs, ceriani, showa, whatever, get the schematic for them, pull them apart in a big pan to catch the oil, and replace the seal, or whatever you are doing. You don't have to top them off if they don't show signs of a leak, if you feel the shock is gone out of them, well, that's different. Your bike is a 2005, it shouldn't have a problem in the front end. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Front fork oil capacity
its 350cc or 11.8 ounces in the Clyma book, but that's for a 1986 onwards model. you can vary the amount you use to suit your style of riding anyways. I doubt it would be that far from the mark.

Use Yamaha suspension oil #01. Amount is 19 ounces. Oil level from top surface w/o cap nut is 3.15" to 5.51". I am sending you a link to a site where you can download a free shop repair manual. It is actually a bit complicated as you will see in the manual.
Top rating due on this one! Thanks!
