|CapHAB||The clymer book shows 10.48 to 10.82 for an oil change. but 12.04 to 12.31 after disassembly. If this helps|

Niterider, you posted that the book said to use 10.5oz of oil.
In the link by Chad & Bulldog, they posted that they used 12.4oz.
A 2oz difference in the low volume fork tubes might be something I would think...
Just something I've noticed as I'm about to tackle this job myself for the first time this week. Maybe I'll split the difference and use 11.6 LOL.

Yes, I used Haynes. I got it done. I used permatex huydralic jack oil. It says on the bottle that it is also for motorcycle forks. The only thing that I did not do, but may do later is check the fork oil level. I just poured in the amount that they said 10.5 oz. for an oil change.
Thanx for all the help and advise.

|750Doug||Niterider, are you doing those seals just following the directions from a Clymers? (or similar book?)|

|niterider||Yes Sr. you are right. I read my book a bit more. I have the answers that I was looking for. Thanx TOM.|

the scratch noise ist gone. Seems that it took a little time that the oils went everywhere because I cleaned the fork with gasoline but I have to reopen it again to gauge the oil level again.
@niterider: I think you have to replace all seals before you fill the fork with the fresh oil.

|niterider||Okay, I have one fork off and the seal and dust seal off. I drained the oil from the drain screw at the bottom. How do I add oil to the fork. do I need to fill it before replaceing the oil seal??? I am off to work I'll be back tonite at 11:30.|

Make sure you get the correct weight fork oil based on your riding weight.

I can't help with the noisey forks. Sorry Tom.
