Question about Honda CB 750 Motorcycles
Fork oil can be from SAE5 to SAE 30 depending how hard you want the fork to rebound. The amount in each fork will differ by about 25-35cc, normally each for runs from 285cc to 355cc.
You can mix a lower SAE with a higher to get the SAe you wanted. Standard SAE used for fork oil is 10 which is equivalent to the thickness of DOT-3 car transmission oil. If good enough, please rate this free advise

SOURCE: torque specs
what size bolt heads on these bolts (the bolts size chart for correct torque specs is 2mm smaller than the head of the bolt on Kaw).while the forks are still off and the end caps also still off,hold them level (up/down) and by hand (which will be easy because the caps are off to let the springs come out past the tube-but leave them in as they change the amt. of fluid goin in)push down slow to compress and bottom them out then fill till you get 100mm from inside the top of the forks tube is on the mark.then pull them back to fully extended ,put the caps CAREFULLY back on so they dont stripp the soft threads up.P.S.if this was used at a track there are 2 inexpensive brass or copper bushings inside the big tubes top and a bit lower that will get worn and let the inner fork tube **** back and fourth as it compresses in and out that causes the seals to leak again very soon because it flexes the round inner part of the fork seal to become out of round (not tight all around the tube for correct sealing) from slack and to much movement from the above mentioned cheap bushings wear.I cut em out with a dremmel and freeze the new ones for easy insertion with fingers to not nick em from tappin in with a hammer,etc.good luck,wallace

call a bike shop they can tell you how much oil or how far to fill them just make sure you have the fork compressed before you put the oil in.. and the spring has to be in before oil
