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

Hi,

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

Jon

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.

### On my 05 kx250,im changing the fork seals-do you have to fill and bleed the cartridge seperately or just fill up the fork leg?

The best way to fill fork oil is to add the specified amount and let the forks sit overnight to allow all entrained air escape. Leave the fill plugs off. Ofter you let the air escape, plug it up install the forks and add air to the desired pressure if has that option.
