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: how to replace fork seal?

Angela, do you have a Clymer, Hayne, or service manual for the bike? If not you should get one, there is a lot of valuable information in there even if you don't do all the work yourself.

Replacing the fork seal requires putting the front end in the air, disconnecting everything from the front wheel (brake lines, speedometer cable if there is one), and dropping the wheel and fork tubes CAREFULLY to separate the two pieces of the fork tubes. Then grab the old seal and replace it with the new seal.

This short description is a VERY abbreviated and simplified version. It's not hard once you have done it a couple times but be very careful not to bend anything in your forks. They have springs inside them too. Change the oil while you are in there. Usually 10 or 15 weight fork oil but look in your manual. If you can't find a manual post again with your bike's year and we will see what we can come up with.

Drift new ones in with a socket or bit of tubing that is the same size as the bearing outer so as not to damage the bearings...re-fit circlip.

1984 kawasaki gpz 1100.. would you be able to tell me what the air pressure for the rear uni track shock absorber should be?

Around 20psi with shock damping on position three gave a good ride in conjunction with 8psi in the linked front forks; for serious street racery another 10 psi in the shock and max damping helped stiffen things up.

GPZ-1100 1995. Changing oil in engine and fork. How much fork oil to use? And what oil is better to use in engine? Thank you.

level of fork oil is more important than the amount...it should be 120mm from the fork top when fully compressed without the springs.
But if you want an amount then you're looking at 470cc although this will depend on wether the fork internals were stripped and dry before refilling. That's why using level is a better guide.

Engine oil for the 11 is 10w40
