Question about kawasaki KX 250 Motorcycles
You measure from the top of the tube down to the top of the oil.
Basically take the spring out of the fork and then push the top part of the leg all the way down as far as it will go,then when you fill with oil you go between 90 and 110mm from the top of the tube.
90 is the highest you want the oil to be,going down to 110 or anywhere in between will make the forks plusher at say midstroke,so for instance go for 100mm as a starting point

Testimonial: "Thanks I did it last night and what and difference the new seals and fluid makes. Thanks again"
How about the oil level in the cartridge?

The volume of oil is calculated by air gap. This is proportional to your weight.
BUT to make life easy, 380 to 400 ml gives a good ride across the board.
If you are planning to race the bike, I would sugest letting a pro do the suspention for you.
Although it's not rocket science, it takes a lot of experience to get it perfect.
Enjoy the ride

SOURCE: Fork oil 1987 KX250.
G,Day back.Not sure about how much oil to put in the forks but may be able to help you stop the leak.Get a film negitave from a camera.Like the ones that come in the developed packet.Cut the notched section off the side of it.Trim one end at 45%.Now slide this into the fork seal and with a sawing action,move it all the way around the seal.When you get the feel of it,you will be able to feel bits of dirt in the seal.When you do,pull it out and the dirt will come with it.Do this a few times.This will work if the seal are not cactus and is cheaper than a rebuild.Hope this is of some help.
