Hey guys and gals,

 

I'm gonna replace my fork seals this week and I'm looking at the parts fiches and they say the kits are qty 1 - I assume I need a kit per fork. Is that right?

 

I also need to buy fork oil and was going to buy the OEM Yamalube Suspension Oil "01" but I only see 1 liter bottles and was curious if the 1 liter bottle will be enough for both forks. Anyone know?

 

Thanks!

I takes about 22.4 ounces per fork. here is a free service manual   http://www.yamahaown...ook.com.au/?r=0

 

 I think that you only need to order 1 fork seal kit to do both forks. but im not positive, im sure someone else can weigh in on this,

Thanks DC! That's awesome. I'll call my local dealer and get their input on the kit. I was going to buy the Yamalube "01" Suspension Oil @ $30 a liter, but not now lol. I'm going with Maxima 5w.
