"......The correct amount and the correct wieght for the rider......"Do you have any specific reccomendations? I'm feeling it's time to change my fork oil and haven't a clue what's best. Solo rider, 160 pounds. Several bikers I've mentioned changing - even checking - fork oil to have looked at me with amusement and asked "why?"
Thanks for all the interesting responces.The manual just states "fork oil" 200m/leg. I suppose they mean 200ml/leg.(no viscosity quoted) and to check every 1000 kms., and replace at 12000 kms.(7500 mls.)Is the oil just topped up thro the 2 slotted screws at the top of the forks?
No, you must remove the fork leg to check. I guess it feels too soft for you? How much do you weigh? ( I'll be nice, ). The bikes are made for the average customer, You may have to set things to your liking. I would go to the dealer and talk it over with him. He should be able to set it up the way you like it. I would start by going to a 15 w FORK Oil.
