Just installed new seals need fork oil capacity and best type to use bike has 4500 miles


Damper oil is traditionally a fairly light grade of straight mineral oil; SAE 20 or 30 is typical but people have their preferences and sometimes with good reason and I have heard of all manner of oils being used from auto transmission fluid to engine oil.

Your bike specs should tell you what oil and how much is recommended for your bike or any motorcycle parts department or repair shop.

In changing 2005 Harley Heritage Model FLSTCI fork oil, how many ounces of fork oil should I use? What does wet or dry mean?


I'm sorry but I don't have the specs on the quantity and type of fork oil for your year and model bike. I work on the older bikes that the dealers will no longer service. But, I can describe the difference between the "wet" and "dry" conditions of the fork assembly. If you take the front forks apart, clean them out, and put them back together with no oil in them, they are considered "dry". For a simple drain and refill type oil change on them where you don't get all the oil out of them, they are considered "wet". I hope this helps, You can call you local dealer's service department and they should tell you the quantity and viscosity of the oil that goes in the front forks on your machine. They'll tell you something like 6 ounces of "Type E" oil, for example. Harley-Davidson uses these types of specs to describe their oils. If you go to a website for fork oil, like PJ1, they may give a cross reference or equivalency chart for converting H-D "Type E" to their oil. I think that would be their 30 weight oil. If the front end seems too "stiff" with 30 weight, you can drop down to 20 weight. I think Honda makes a 25 weight but not sure. Your Harley won't mind the Honda oil. BG.

Good Luck
Steve

How many mounht need to change oil


Usually you want to change oil about every 2-3000 miles depending on the type of bike and type of riding you do. If you only ride a few miles a season [under 2000], I would recommend changing it at the beginning of the season. If your bike is equiped with an oil filter always change it at the same time. - Les, happy riding.

What kind of oil for Honda Hornet 250cc 1997?


Is this your first bike time owning a bike/motorcycle?
Standard motorcycle oil type is SAE10W40 mineral, if you want a much better one use synthtetic oil which are more expensive but does a much better job in maintaining your bike performance.
Word of caution, never ever use an oil with same SAE which are meant for cars, as they will ruin the bike transmission/clutch.

I have a 1994 heritage after changing oil and filling it to the full mark on the dipstick, I rode it 80 miles the next day I checked it again and the oil tank is over filled ???.What happened.


You over filled it, depending on the type of dipstick you have, the oil is checked either on the side stand or with the bike upright. If you have the type of dipstick that is floppy (the stick part flops around) you have to check the oil while the bike is on the side stand.

Regardless Softtails hold 3 quarts of oil, if you add exactly 3 quarts after draining the oil bucket and changing the filter the oil level will be correct (unless the oil has sumped).

The other thing that happens sometimes when the bike sits for any period of time without running the oil can sump from the bucket into the engine crankcase. If this happens it will look like you are low on oil, so if you go adding oil and then run the bike it will unsump and overflow the bucket making a hell of a mess.

Hope this helps you.

Oil type


10W-40 15W-40 etc As I am unable to tell how long the existing oil has been in the bike should a flushing oil be used befor changing the oil? Any help/suggestions/advice would be appreciated. Regards, ,according to 900 Sei WORKSHOP MANUAL Additions and changes to the workshop manual for 500 Quattro-750 Sei whose print date appears to be 2-80, AGIP SINT 2000 SAE 10 W 50 oil is to be used for the engine. I drained the oil and changed the filter on my 1979 750 with 380 miles on it last May. I bought the bike new but haven't used it since 1993. The oil and filter were again changed after 12 miles. regards,,,
