I just picked up a 2009 YZ450f with a couple issues that I've been working on in my spare time and I'm a little out of my field of experience when it comes to fork setup on a dirt bike. I grew up on quads so I'm familiar with all of settings and what not and getting them dialed where I want but I've never messed with fork oil levels or in this case, a fork oil leak.
The right side fork stanchion is leaking oil from the very bottom where the compression dampener bolt is. I looked up the exploded view and noted that there are a series of washers and seals that seal that bottom bolt from leaking oil and I have ordered them and have them. I should I be able to just pull the bottom bolt, drain the fluid, and replace the washer and seal right?
Then I also ordered a tool to measure fork fluid with the syringe to set my fork fluid levels once I've replaced the seal. It has metric measurements on it so my question is what measurement should I be using to get the correct cc of fork oil in my fork? Is there anything else that I need to worry about when I am going to be pulling that bottom bolt out and draining all the oil out other than just refilling the fork oil at the top of the fork when I'm done to the correct level?
Any help is much appreciated, Thanks.
