It's most likely that your fork springs are sagging, your oil needs replacing and you should adjust the preload and damping to get the setting you like. If you have an early model without preload and damping adjustment, then replace the springs with Hagon (

Sagging fork springs


You may have an air adluster, schrader valve with which to add air pressure, or there may be settings on the rebound and damping settings, are the fork seals leaking oil at the sliders of the forks, springs do wear out as well, some bicks have anti dive solenoids activated via front brake activation and limit the compression of the front forks upon rapid braking, , you maty need springs, seals and thicker fork oil its hard to say exactly what you have going on but its one or more of these.

What is the spec for oil in the front forks on a 2004 suzuki rm 250


If you have the stock valving, I would run 2.5w Motorex in the damper to compensate for the stiff feel stock, and thicker oil in the spring chamber such as Mobil1 5w20 to allow the oil lock ring to do its job on bottom-outs. I'm at 375ml in the spring chamber and I weight 155lb.

Does the front shocks on a 1982 1100 GS take air pressure. If so how much. The exhaust pipes are hitting my front fender now when I stop hard or go over bumps.


if there are air valves, those early bike sometimes needed air, about 5psi, do not use a compresor, use a small hand pump, or proper low pressure inflator. A standard tyre inflater will blow the seals.
The guard should not hit no matter what the pressure, check the exhaust is the correct one for the bike,check for a bent frame or forks

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)

Weaping fork seals.


a trace is normal, to much is not. that probable is due to dryed out fork seal, as they ere not getting lubed due to inactivity. the air fittings are for ajustable damping. if you ride 2 up or yourself being heavy or you just want a firmer fork suspension. i don;t know the range for your bike. try asking the dealer.or just put in 5 lbs. and try. if the presure doesn't last then you have leaky seals......

Fron end bottoming out and hitting front fender


Bad fork seals, allowing loss of fork oil. Missing fork oil due to mischief or missing drain plug. Fork damping mechanism failure. Huge pothole. Too many wheelies. Broken fork spring(s). Severe bike overload and heavy braking. Front end collision. Air shocks low on air.

Any of those things COULD cause the front to bottom out. Probably the most likely is low oil in the forks. Not likely the damping mechanism could have failed but it's possible.
