Replacing my fork seals. How much new oil do I add to each fork?
See lance`s sticky thread "Changing Fork Seals".Replacing my fork seals. How much new oil do I add to each fork?
I did read from somewhere a good tip for pressing the new seal in place: Put the old seal between the new one and the pipe. That way there is little chance that you can damage the new seal. I used it myself and it worked great.
Good info. I agree on the BelRay :smiley_thSee lance`s sticky thread "Changing Fork Seals".
Tip copied from above link:
*BelRay* 15 weight fork oil is highly regarded.
The dealer didn`t have it so I got a bottle of *Motul* 15 weight fork oil to use when I change my fork seals.
The Clymer manual recommends SAE 10W-20 fork oil.
310-320 ml (10.48-10.82 US oz.) if you just drain the oil. For all models worldwide
After a complete disassembly, 359-364 ml (12.04-12.31 US oz.) for US and Canadian models.
ALL OTHERS: 370-375 ml (12.51-12.68 US oz.)
Ma Kaw recommends measuring the oil level for each fork leg to be as equal as possible.
Canadian and US models- 220-240 mm (8.66-9.45") below top edge of inner slider tube.
All other models - 205-225 mm (8.07-8.86")
