Depending on the G S 450 model you have these forks take between 5.1 to 6.4 Imp. oz. the best way is to drain the fork oil into a measuring cup and then replace that same amount + a bit . Any fork oil will do the job you can even get a synthetic one now. Good Luck

New clutch master cylinder new slave cylinder new release fork and bearing new clutch, have bled three bottles through the system and still not enough movement at the slave cylinder to release clutch


Hi,
You need to check that you are actually getting the full length of stroke from the master cylinder.
If you are then you still a captive air pocket in the master cylinder and the only way to get rid of it is to vacum bleed the system from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
Check these and let me know, I can give you further information.
Thanks
Jason

HI, IF YOU DONT KNOW THE MACHINES HISTORY, AS THE BIKE IS NOW 4 YEARS OLD IT WOULD NOT HURT TO GIVE IT A THOROUGH CHECK OVER , IN GENERAL THESE K5-K6 ARE A GOOD BIKE. I WOULD BE THINKING OF CHANGING/ FORK OIL,/ BRAKE FLUIDS IN ADDITION TO ANY OTHER WORK, MANY OVERLOOKED ITEMS SUCH AS SPROCKET HOUSING BEARINGS/ REAR SUSPENSION BEARINGS/ WHEEL SPINDLES WOULD ALL BENEFIT FROM REMOVAL INSPECTION AND RE LUBRICATING.

Correct quantity(ml) of oil per front shock(fork) for 2003 Suzuki RM250


110mm oil height in each fork tube. Remember to bleed it first to ensure all air is out the inner chamber and then measure 110mm from the top of the tube, fully compressed with no spring or damping rod inside. USe a 5W fork oil. You can also look at WWW.RACETECH.com under search, and then valving search, enter all your relevant details and bike model and it calculates it for you.

I have a harley davidson XL883H and need to know what the fron fork oil level should be when the forks are fully extended?


Remove the small plugs at the bottom of each fork slider and drain the forks. Do this by working the forks up and down until the forks are empty. Then, refill the forks with the proper amount of oil. Since you are not disassembling the forks and cleaning them out, you should use the "wet" measure of oil instead of the "dry" measurement.

Since you didn't tell me exactly what year model 883 you have, if the fork tubes are 39mm tubes (measure the top tube) use the following amount of oil. I use 30 wt. fork oil. If this is too stiff, drop down to 20 weight.

883 Hugger --- 10.7 ounces
all others --- 9.0 ounces

That's the only ones I have information for at this time.
