Oily fluid leaking from front suspension forks. Both sides leaking how do i repair this.

Replace the Fork oil seals. It will require you to support the bike from the headstock and remove the forks. You will also need to know the correct amount of fork oil to put in each leg. Buy the manual for your bike (whatever it is) it will cost about 20GBP. a new set of forks will cost considerably more.

How much oil do i need in each front fork ?

buy some graduated plastic containers let all air out of forks put new empty container below forks and let it drip into bowl then pump forks up and down a couple times and this sounds squirt out the rest. now you now...but if you had a leak this will just be a ball park figure only. repeat same procedure for other fork...the forks on my bike do take different amounts!

How much would it cost to replace the forks on a 05 GSXR 600?

to straiten one cost around 120 bucks,that would be if you took it off and took it to a shop with a press.Suzuki dealer has parts (new) and mechanics to do it for you. The add may be right, could be a cheap fix, or not if the frame is bent or just twisted.

What is the fork oil amount for a 2002 klx 300 per fork tube

The owners manual says to do the following if you don't want to remove the forks:
*raise the front wheel
*remove the fender, meter cable & unit, headlight, handle bar, fork protectors
*loosen the fork upper clamp bolts
*remove the caps from the top of the fork tube
*fully compress the fork tube so the dust cover touches the bottom and place a stand to hold it
*remove the springs
*set the oil level 68mm (standard) or 60 - 90 mm (adjustable) from the top of the tube

It may be easier to remove the tubes and you could replace the leaky seal at the same time. I did this recently and put in new springs too. It was my first time working on forks. With help from TT members and the service manual it was fairly easy. I didn't buy an oil gauge, seal driver, or spring holder. I used a ruler to measure the oil and a medicine dropper to remove any excess. For a seal driver I used a piece of PVC pipe cut in half then secured around the lower tube to drive the seal. Try a search on replacing fork seals for more info. 5w oil is standard but i have heard that 7 works well Good luck.

How do you replace fork oil and what do you do with air valves on 1981 kawasaki kz650 csr front forks? Do you pour in new fork oil and then insert air through the air nozzle on each individual front fork?...

Your owners manual will help if you have one. There used to be drain plugs under each fork. The air valves help suspension smoothen the rides more.

Quantity of oil in the front forks

With the springs out,compress the forks fully then fill them to 150mm (6in) from the top. Refit springs and caps and you are good to go

Replacing the front seal- located on the fork.

To replace the fork seal you must open the top of the fork and remove the spring. Then drop the fork tube out of the clamp. Once the fork tube is removed replacing the seal is simply pulling the old one off and putting the new one on. You will need to remove your front wheel.

Iv got a 01 dosent click into 5th gear.All it does is make a clunky noise like its trying to click in but nothing happens.1n234 are algood.anyone know whats happening??

You have a bent shift fork. The engine will need to come out of the bike then the gear box gets opened up, ( major repair job ), the offending shift fork gets replaced then all gets reassembled. This is not a project for the amature mechanic unless you want to buy a new bike.
