The standard oil is Kayaba 01 fork oil, which is 5wt I believe. And I think the standard oil height was 105 mm, +/- 20mm.

yes, 5wt

2 ways to get level:

652ml +/- 4ml (22.04 +/- .14oz)
or
135mm +/- 2mm from top of tube, fully compressed, spring removed.

Seriously? 135mm stock oil height? Wow. My '02 KX250 is spec'd to have a 75mm oil height, with an allowable range of 60mm-120mm. I run about 70mm.

Yep, different forks. I have the pdf manual here on this laptop.

this is 2005 team green recommendation:
http://www.teamgreen...T_Sus_Chart.pdf

the level is about 90mm because they have bladder forks
only the 2003 forks differ, that year has no bladders.
since 2005 the KX250 has dual chamber forks and no oil level is specified but the oil volume. the KX125 kept the bladder forks until the end of production of the 2T

see all TG charts:
