I wouldn't use 5 wt oil.I fell it's a bit light. Proberbly 10 or 15 wt depending on your size.
Not sure about the quantity.It's not easy getting specs these days & Iv'e found most qualified bike mechanics (including me) set them by the fork oil level these days. I must admit however I do prefer the quantity as some forks are outside the golden rule- & of course then you a required to keep up to date with what theyare(some showas commonly)

To set them by level, check the distance from the top of the shock to the oil with the fork fully compressed without the spring. Set this to 110mm & you will be fine
Hope this helps
Regards
Andrew

How mutch oil for a 2.3 auf engine


You must add 5 1/2 quarts of oil to possibly 6 quarts to it this is very much required but I'm positive only 5 quarts do not over fill the motor it can blow the engine or burn the piston rings because either too much or less is added

How do I fill the gearbox oil on my Seat Leon 1.9 TDi? (same engine as a VW Golf 1.9 TDi)


If the car is a manual shift,the filler / level plug (Allen key) is on the front of the gearbox. Simply remove and fill to this level. Box holds 2.5 litres of 75/ 80 grade oil. Do NOT use EP grade
All the best

I'm a new owner of a 2003 Heritage softail


You will need either the HD oil filter wrench (HD-44067), which fits over the end of oil filter Harley-Davidson SuperPremium5 Oil Filter 63731-99A and allows you to remove filter with a ratchet and extension, or a strap type oil filter wrench purchased at an autoparts store. I use the strap type generic wrench. The HD wrench, actually a hex cap to fit over end of filter, would be a worthwhile investment. There is very very limited side access to filter on bike neccesitating one of these tools. Pan drain plug on same side, to front of pan at corner. Drain oil, remove filter, wipe off filter mount, fill new filter with fresh oil and install, pour in 5 quarts total using a flexible neck funnel, and your done. It takes 5 quarts total including what you use to fill new filter. SAE 20W50 or SAE 60 grade is appropriate for ambient temperatures above 80 deg to over 100 deg F. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH "O" RING !!!!!

Tranny:
This one is tricky get yourself a service manual. "O" rings are a pain man! train plug should be line up with dip stick.
