Help wanted front fork
Posted January 03, 2002 - 01:32 AM
I just changed the oil seal and my dealer told me that it contained about 1liter of oil.
I've done exactly what the manual said and i do have to say it's pretty easy but i filled the oil and when it was at level i saw that i used about 0.3l. So now i'm worried that i might done something wrong.

Did you pump the damping rod (or whatever it is called) up and down "more than 10 times" each time you filled the oil to the top of the forks? You need to do this to get the oil into the cartridge.
My manual is pretty clear on the steps and also gives the specification on how much oil each fork leg holds (but it is not here with me at work!)...
