Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

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 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

Where does the oil come out of a 2004 Yamaha 1100 VStar Classic

Oil drain plug is located near the bottom of the engine, left side toward the front. The oil filter element is located on the right side of the engine under the cover toward the front. Changing the oil filter usually requires removal of the front exhaust pipe. There is an aftermarket filter relocation kit that replaces the filter element with a spin on filter that mounts on the front of the bike.

Does my 93 1100 shadow have oil air in forks and if oil how to add

First of all don't add oil, change it. to drain your oil you need to remove the air tube, remove the front wheel, loosen the allen screw on the bottom of the fork, unscrew the fork top, then remove the fork tube, and turn it over to drain(be careful internal parts of fork will come out)remove parts clean and inspect. Reassemble in reverse order,snug up the screw on bottom, fill top with correct oil qty,cap top, tighten bottom and finish reassembly.
