How much fork oil do I put in


Dave, I usually measure the amount of fork oil that drains out of each fork and replace with that same amount. In my experience this is not necessarily a critical spec. All bikes are different, however. Many owners and mechanics will experiment with differing amounts and weights of oil. You may consult your dealership and try to get within a couple ounces of spec.

Change fork seals


you need to undo the pinch bolts on the yolks and remove the front wheel & mudguard. Undo the bolys retaining the brake caliper and swing it towards the frame downtube, secure it with string. Withdraw each fork leg and clean up with a soft rag. On each leg, remove the top bolt (slowly to release spring pressure) and pour out the fork oil and discard it. Pour in a small amount of parrafin and swill it around a bit to clean out any residue. Remove the dustcap or gaiter and put it on one side. You will now see the fork oil seal. If it has a circlip then remove it, if not, then don't bother. Prise out old seal carefully making sure not to mark the soft alloy of the lower leg or the chrome on the stantion. Rub a little fork oil onto the new seal and carefully slide it over the stantion, pushing it all the way down. Use a piece of wood to firmly push the seal into the lower leg until it sits squarely and fully into place. Replace circlip if necessary and refit dust cover. Refill each fork leg with 142 ml of 10 wieght fork oil and replace top bolt. pump the leg a few times to settle the oil and then refit the legs in the reverse order of removal. When done, pump the forks a few times, go for a cuppa whilst it settles and then you are all ready to go.

How much fork oil is required in the front forks of a 2000 suzuki 800 intruder and how do you measure if you put too much in. The guy at cycle gear where I bought the fork oil said to top it off or fill...


Hi, all model VS 800 from1992-2000 take the same amount of oil in the front forks, using 10 weight fork oil measure into a clean measuring device or mark the side of the oil bottle 413 mls, pour this caerfully into 1 fork, and the same amount into the other fork, 413/413 cm (3)

The front forks go down to far on my fxst 2004 nightrain


If you are saying that your front suspension is too soft, you can change the fork oil in the front forks to a heavier viscosity. I think Harley recommends Type E fork oil. I've found that PJB 30 wt. fork oil works best for me.

Since I'm not familiar with the newer forks, I'll have to recommend that you ask the dealer how to drain and refill the forks and how much oil to put back in them. There are usually two amounts of oil to put in the forks. One amount is a "dry" amount to add when you disassemble the forks and then refill them. The "wet" amount is for when you simply drain the forks and then refill them. Naturally, the "wet" amount will be less than the "dry" amount.

Sorry I couldn't give you more information but my expertise is the earlier model Harley bikes.

Good Luck
Steve

Volume of fork oil needed per fork for a 1986 VF 400 nc 13


Well, when you take off the fork make sure you empty it first before anything else then make sure that the fork pressure spring is released before changing the seals. The fork oil amount should be no more than 200 cc or no less than 190 cc

Frount fork oil amount in a HD XL1200C


"wet" = 9.0 ounces
"dry" = 10.2 ounces
If you simply drain the oil then readd the oil, it is considered a "wet" oil change.

If you disassemble and clean all the components and then add oil, it is considered a "dry" oil change.

Good Luck. Steve
