I have 4 CBX's '79-2, '81 Turbo, & '82. If you are using stock forks and not a real agressive rider, the ATF fluid works just fine. If you are using performance forks, have other internal modifications, or prefer the twisties, you can experiment with different weight oils. I believe that ATF is about 10W ...

This is one of the few things that I recommend you take to a shop - you need some very special tools and techniques to fix this problem. Sorry,

SOURCE: How much fork oil in a 2002 KTM 400 SX

White power allow a 110mm air gap with springs out and fork compressed as a general guide ,adjust from there according to prefrance . Thats probably,from memory about 600ml or so.If you overfill the leg ,cut the tip off the fork oil bottle , mark out on a clear piece of fuel hose 110 mm from one end of hose with a permanent marker, attach other end to the tip of the now empty fork oil bottle nipple, squeeze bottle,insert hose down to 110mm mark,take hand pressure off bottle and WWHHAAALLLAAA!!!!!!!!. Magically the excess oil is sucked back up into bottle.....Don't you just love the forces of nature. : ] ride on DB ......Hope this gets you out of trouble ....Flabbycat

What viscosity and how much Fork oil


If you are rebuilding your Forks, I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND replacing the fluid with Synthetic (last Longer) and is cleaner for the internal Valves... Viscosity will fine tune your suspension. you need to take into consideration your location, your riding weight and riding habits... The lower the number the more action, the Higher the number, the slower the response and harder ride but when you take into consideration Weight and Normal Ambient Temperatures... You need to dial in your own number...

How much fork oil do i put in a cbr 600f 1990


Between 275 to 325cc but left and right will differ in amount by 25-35cc. Too much will make the rebound harfer, too little will easily and quickly destroy the fork seals.

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

94 shadow vt1100 front forks to soft.


Does it have a bad fork seal? Check this by popping the dust cover off the lower legs and if you see fork oil on top of the seal than it has gone dad and needs replaced. Adding oil to the forks will stiffen then back up but if you have bad seals then you will be adding more oil again in a very short time and also this is dangerous cause the oil can get on the brake pads and cause brake fade when you need them.
Good luck.
