Usually from the very top of each fork tube assembly. I have heard of guys "pumping" the oil into the forks from the drain hole like you do with the foot of an outboard motor but I've never tried it.

Good Luck

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: Adding Fork Oil

yes see caps at top of trees caps come off at the bottom of shocks you will find a single think 9 mm bolt to drain oil out. Make sure you drain all the oil up and add the same amount that shocks are required nothing more nore less.....

SOURCE: i need to know if i can add fork oil to my 03 yz25...

Yes. Unscrew the fork caps one at a time and push the front end down just enough to get a turkey baster or syringe to the inside. Unless you've lost alot of fluid, just add in 10cc increments. If you get too much in them, the forks will get really stiff.

How much fork oil do I put in each leg of my zephyr 1100


Is you have taken the forks apart and changed the fork bushes, ie forks are totally dry, you will need about 520ml in each fork leg. When refilling and will the springs removed, add about 550ml per leg, the stroke the forks numerous times to expel any excess air. Then with forks compressed the oil level should be adjusted to 119mm from the top of the fork to the oil, ie the air gap to the oil. The add springs and spacers and reassemble.

I'm having problems with my 1987 Honda Aspencade front forks taking the bumps very hard. Is this a matter of adding fork oil? I cannot find any info on this or how to add the oil or troubleshoot this...


Do not add oil too your forks. Too much oil will jam the forks up, damaging the fork tube chrome and the fork bushings. If you suspect incorrect oil levels in the tubes, drain the tubes and refill them with the correct amount of oil. If there is too much pressure in the system, then loosen an air tube and bleed off the excess pressure. You may have a defective air pressure valve or pump. Parts that may or may not be available from the local dealer any more. More information can be found at ngwclub.com or Randaaks.com. Do not over fill your forks with oil. Let the air pressure out of your forks.Use the compressor on the GL1200 to reduce or add air pressure to the forks. The controls for the compressor are located on the dash. Turn the key the "On" position to use the compressor

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.

Does my 93 1100 shadow have oil air in forks and if oil how to add


First of all don't add oil, change it. to drain your oil you need to remove the air tube, remove the front wheel, loosen the allen screw on the bottom of the fork, unscrew the fork top, then remove the fork tube, and turn it over to drain(be careful internal parts of fork will come out)remove parts clean and inspect. Reassemble in reverse order,snug up the screw on bottom, fill top with correct oil qty,cap top, tighten bottom and finish reassembly.

Can you tell me how much oil to put in an en500 forks please, Andy


If you never have put for oil into a set of forks, yes you have to check both forks. I would suggest treading lightly. If you have time and a place to block the bike as well as a manual you can do it.
Are you adding oil because the seals are leaking or do you have excessive stiction in the fork? If the seals are leaking, you will have to pull the forks and add new seal and put in exactly the right amount oil.
Do you have air seat or is it a closed fork?
For you en500 you should have a volume of oil in your service manual.

How to fill the front suspension on a ktm exc 2001


If you get the sevice manual or contact a dealer to get the correct oil amount for your bike, they need to know the model and year, you have to have the forks off the bike. take the fork caps off, take the springs out compress the upper fork tube all the way and add the specified oil. if they also give you the measured amount from the top that's the best way to get both fork oil levels exact. there is a special tool that you set the oil level in millimeters and it sucks out the oil to the right level, but before you do that step after adding the oil always pull and push on the cartage rod several times to remove air from the cartage tube. you will hear the air coming out and you will feel the changes in the cartage rod as the cartage tube fills up with oil and the air is removed.
something i'm confussed on though is if you replaced a seal you would have had to brake down the fork to replace it. you would have poored the oil into a container, cleaned all the internal parts,and used a fork seal driver to install the new seal. part of your question asks where do i put the oil in? thats in the open end of the fork after you have taken off the fork cap. It sounds to me like you only replaced the dust seal on one fork. that is not going to fix your leaking fork. you need to replace the oil seal thats pressed inside of the top fork tube.
