Hey all,

I'm hoping to replace my fork oil this weekend and remember reading about how caution should be used when depressing the cap on top of the fork if it's one of the "pressurized" caps.

So if mine does indeed have a pressurized cap is there anything on reassembly that I need to do such as re-"pressurizing"?

I'm thinking no but that little voice inside my head keeps telling me to ask to make sure.

:blah:

What year is it, and if it is a presurised, just let out the pressure.
It is like a tire valve on the top of the fork.
All you need is a hand pump to add pressure, just not to much.

If I remember right you never put more than 7psi or you can blow out the fork seals. I've always used 3-5psi and felt the difference.

I've never noticed I guess, but do all years have the valves at the top? I know my KZ1000 does.
85 - 88 only.

They all look like they have valves, but they are just to hold the cover on.

Okay so I think I'm in the clear. Mine is a '95, so to clarify I DO NOT have a pressurized valve then right???? This means I shouldn't have to re-pressurize on reassembly correct?

Sometimes I need to be told 3 or 4 times before I get it through my thick head!

You've got it, no pressure required after re-assembly.
