SOURCE: How much fork oil in a 2002 KTM 400 SX

White power allow a 110mm air gap with springs out and fork compressed as a general guide ,adjust from there according to prefrance . Thats probably,from memory about 600ml or so.If you overfill the leg ,cut the tip off the fork oil bottle , mark out on a clear piece of fuel hose 110 mm from one end of hose with a permanent marker, attach other end to the tip of the now empty fork oil bottle nipple, squeeze bottle,insert hose down to 110mm mark,take hand pressure off bottle and WWHHAAALLLAAA!!!!!!!!. Magically the excess oil is sucked back up into bottle.....Don't you just love the forces of nature. : ] ride on DB ......Hope this gets you out of trouble ....Flabbycat

SOURCE: 1986 zl 600 eliminator. Quits while driving.

I had a similar problem. Mine would continue running, but it felt like it dropped cylinders. Sputtered, backfires...etc. Check your ignitor box (under the seat, attached to the rear fender. Start the bike up to operating temp, and if it does the problem, the tech that fixed mine squeezed the ignitor box, and it returned to normal. Got a new one checking salvage yards online.

Does the shifter still have spring tension- does it return or do you have to move it back? If not it is most likely the shift spring or cam on the shift drum. This is minor repair usually clutch cover removal.But if internal then major repair, like gears or shift forks

Just rebuilt head, new head gasket. It sat with new oil for 1 month and oil was fine. I started it, and within 45 seconds there was water in the oil.

If the compression is OK and the head gasket is OK there is possibly a crack in the head.
Hard work sometimes rebuilding engines to find more faults.

On the oil fill port, there will be a number with cc after it. That is how many cc's of oil your crankcase holds. There are 946cc in one quart.

Hope this helps,

I have a kawasaki 600 eliminator

Ck the fuel tank petcock for proper position. Fuel is filling your cylinders and pasing the rings into the crankcase. Diluted oil will take out bearings. Good luck. I you must, turn off your fuel when parked and not running.
