Moved my B5 one foot to the North, so, I could get the SNOW BLOWER out and clear the driveway this morning.
On thinking about my fork note of 12/9/12, I don't think they ever had any oil in them. The drain is a nipple with a cap screwed on it. Even if oil had leaked out, there should have been a trace in the cap when it was unscrewed from the bottom. It was completely dry with no oil residue what so ever. GA-DK
Blackened and wrapped my header:
If 265 fits, seems to work, and doesn't blow seals then you're golden. The fact that you got 256 in makes me as sure as you that there was no oil in there to start with. The C5 fork takes less, 195ml or soAndThe amount of oil seems it depends on the source.If I read the Service Manual, it says 265cc of SAE 10-30wt oil.If I read the Owners Manual (for the USA/California G5 with a picture of a G5 on the cover) it says "200 m / leg", "Fork oil".I'm not sure how much it takes to equal a "m" ?
