    Looking for how many oz to add to each fork tube

  • #2
    I think once clean and dry add fluid until 110mm below top lip of tube? But check manual

        Mine is an 06 and it never had a fork service done before. The fluid was redish in color from factory. Wasnt all that bad at 5200 miles and probably did not need it but i am a PM minded person and went ahead and did the fork service. I removed just a tad more that 16 oz per fork. So that is what i put back.

          Measurement of the airspace with the springs removed and the forks collapsed is what is important, not having the same volume. Start with 110 like Scott said and adjust slightly from there or move from seven weight to 10 weight. If you're installing progressive springs I think it's a minimum of five and a half inches because their springs displace more oil. If you go over that you risk blowing the seals.
