Standard amount of fork oil for Honda xrm 125, what is best 2t or fork oil, my front fork is so bumpy


The fork oil does not have anything to do with the kind of engine do you have, 2t or 4t. Doesn't matter.
You need to replace the fork oil, you need to know the year of the fork. means, you need to know if it's a bladder or non bladder fork.
oil height of the bladder fork is approx. 70mm, non bladder forks run about 100mm oil level.
oil amount is about 530-600cc per leg

How do i change fork oil an will it make them stiffer an is they a number where i can talk to ya


To change the fork oil, look down on the lower part of each fork leg just above the axle on the backside of each leg and you'll find an Allen plug or small screw. Take this screw out, hold the front brake and push down on the front forks. The fork oil will come out of the tube. Do both sides at the same time. Once you get the oil out of them, reinstall the drain plug. Then, take the large hex cap on ONE TUBE AT THE TIME and pour the correct amount of the correct fork oil into each tube. There is a specific amount of oil that must be poured into each leg. Since you simply drained your forks instead of disassembling them, you should use what is known as the "Wet" quantity of oil. I'm pretty sure your bike takes 9.0 ounces of oil in each leg. Call your local dealer and they'll tell you how much oil to put in. Your bike came from the factory with "Type E" oil in the forks. The viscosity of the oil determines the dampening effect of the forks. Heavier oil will stiffen the front forks, a lighter viscosity of oil will make the front end softer. You can check the Internet for fork oils and they should give you a comparison of what weight oil is equivalent to "Type E" oil. I think PJ 1's 30 weight oil is the same as type E Harley oil. Use only "fork oil" in your front forks as it has special "anti-foaming" agents in it. If the oil foams up, you'll lose the dampening effect in your forks.

Good Luck

Re 2006 Husqvarna WR125 - I want to top up the fork oil, have the measurements and oil but unsure what to open to add oil. Help.


well first of all,,,,,you dont just top up the fork oil,,,,
you drain it all out and refill it with clean fresh oil....
the reson for this is,,how much oil is left in the forks?
if you over fill them with oil you will burst the top fork sead?? bad news that is! so find the drain plug (a nut or screw) at the bottom of each fork leg and drain all the old oil out first,,, then remove the fork top plug and tip in the right amount of the right grade of oil into each leg,,,then let it stand for a fuw minuets,,for the air to come out,,,do up the fork top plug and push the forks down a fuw times before riding it to spred the oil around inside the forks,,,oh,,by the way,,,change the fork oil yearly,,,,,

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)

its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.
