My opinion is it would be simple once you have done a few but even after many years of playing with motors I still take mine to the shop for suspension work - They some how just seem to do it better?
But if you keen to learn and want to try with a service instructions you may have no problem and I guess you can always take them into the shops if doesn't work out how you expected
good luck regards Jamie

How much oil do you put in the front forks when changing the fork seals on a honda fireblade 900 rrw model on a t reg

It's hard to get specs in mls or cc these days so I'll let you in on a BIG secret(don't tell everyone,hush hush,& we stay wiser than others,promse not to tell, cross your heart).

Ok here we go- NO this ISN'T a joke so listen carefully.

Set the oil levels in the front forks

with the cartridges blead(simply draw up & down on the damper rod & you can feel the air bleeding out),

& before you re-fit the springs,

With the forks fully compressed
The fork oil level should be 100-110mm from the top.
This applies to basically all forks(except-a few like MX showa on certain RMs' & the new kawasaki 250 MXer.)
Hope this helps
Regards Andrew

Fork Oil Question

No fork oil should destroy seals. I wouldn't go crazy on brand, as this isn't a full blown motocross bike. Use what you can get easily. Changing it is the important part, as many people never do.

I want to up grade my xr 200 1999 front forks , better forks and disc brake what bike will do this to my xr im thinking of change over,

Think of any of the motocross bikes.You will fit the cr front ends but it is also best to change the brake master cyl. at the same time.Check the weight of the exchange bike to get it pretty close to yours.Spring sizes and weights will then give you an upgrade ride and you dont have to play around with them too much.Look in the 250 2 stroke range first.Plenty of them around and the weight is similar.Hope this helps you

Front fork is in very bad state on 1998 beta techno trials

Hi, Leecoggan for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.
