SOURCE: Fork seal replacement

Did you try taking down the fork seal and cleaning out with wd/40 and a piece of 30mm film? You should always try this first. The seals rarely go bad. There's probably just a vary small rock holdeing it open and the film will dislodge it the wd is just to help things along.

SOURCE: i need to get new fork seals and cant find out

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. There is a '76 manual there. It is close enough to your '78 to be extremely helpful as not much of anything changed in those two years. The listing just says "Suzuki GS750 ". Page 90 has a diagram. Page 93 says to mix 50/50 10w30 motor oil and standard ATF (automatic transmission fliuid) for the fork oil. You do not need to tear down the forks to install a new seal and the seal can be installed without the special tool.
www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

SOURCE: gsxf 600 fork seals are leaking

Get a manual as you will be in over your head if you haven't done one before, and it will have all the steps in there to do it. There are a bunch of parts in the lower leg of the fork. If you want a better set up then you have, I would look at replacing them with some 89-97 model forks as they are adjustable, and our 88 models are not.

Normally no. If the fork seals are leaking when you ratchet the front down on the trailer your seals were bad prior to that. If you are talking about the straps being wrapped around the forks the only thing that they would contact would be the dust covers. The fork seals are actually down inside the fork about 1/4 inch. Have a good day

Specs on how much fork oil is needed for a 1995 gsxr 1100 w


This volume of oil is shown in the service manual, on one of its specifications pages. If you are going to work on your cycle, you need to get a service manual.

For a bike of this age, there should be a free download of the manual. Find it by googling "service manual download Suzuki 1995 GSX-R 1100w."

Following this advice, I found this link to a free download;
http://servicemanualsgsxr.com/suzuki-gsx-r-1100-1993-1996-service-manual/. After downloading the manual I found the fork oil capacity on page 1-11, 425 ml.

However, I think you will want to know how to get the oil in and out of the forks as well. This info is found on pages 7-22 to 7-29.

Enjoy the experience.

How to Replace front fork seals on Suzuki GSXR 1100 K model


Remove front wheel, brake calliper etc . Undo top and bottom yoke pinch bolts and slide out fork leg. Clamp chrome tube in a soft jawed vice and remove top nut carefully as it is under some load and will fly away, (but its not too much you can hold it with your hand). Tip out remaining oil slowly so as to not loose spacer on top of main fork spring. Clamp lower aluminium leg in vice by calliper mounts and remove allen screw in extreme end (if the wheel spindle was in you couldnt see it) This is the only part that might be a problem as the inner end may turn. An impact wrench may help or if not a simple broom handle shoved up the other end is often enough. Once this bolt is removed the leg will split. Now lever out the dust cover to reveal the wire circlip holding in the fork seal. Remove the clip and lever out carefully the old fork seal. Fit new seal using a large socket and mallet or something similar and reassemble in reverse order, not forgetting to add correct amount of new fork oil.

How do I putt fork oil in my 88 1100f susuki


Hi

Remove the front axle, the wheel and undo the clamps holding the forks, there are two sets usually held on my allen key bolts.

Slide the forks out of the tubes and empty the fork oil into a container. Refill (usually 8oz but check manual) with the correct grade of oil and slide the fork legs back into the tubes. Tighten the clamps and refit wheel and axle. Test the forks first by pushing down on them.

Hope this helps, please vote for me.

Can you tell me the fork oil weight for gsx 1400 ltd ed. thank you.


It depends on what type of ride you want,,,i prefer 10weight and just a tad of air in the forks! Be careful when using a gas station air hose, you could blow a seal...just give a little quick burst till you see the forks raise up a little .you can use transmission fluid if you like also, it"ll work just as good.

Bottom seal leaking on pair usd folks


the actual seal sits inside the outer fork tube, if you didnt strip your forks down then all you have replaced is the dust cover/scraper, and therefore you haven't actually replaced the seal. they can be a pain in the **** to do i'd say just take it to a dealer and pay em to replace the seal as they will have the special tools required to do it, unless of course like me you have a family member who is a mechanic at a suzuki dealer
