Fork oil cc for GNCC

10 posts in this topic

I currently have 375cc of fluid in my '08 and i want to take out some of initial harshness from roots and rocks and whatnot. Do you think taking out 5cc from each fork will do it? I already did a search but didnt find what im looking for?

Thanks, bill804

No kidding?!

The fork calls for 350cc as the baseline, and as little as 5cc one way or other can make a LOT of difference. I would think they would be harsh.

If you are using conventional fork oils and valving, use 335-340 to start, and add 5cc/side at a time if needed to stop it from bottoming on the big stuff. Using Dave Johnson's oil and fork kits, I run around 320cc in mine.

So should i take out 15cc from each fork fo now? The next time i'm gonna be riding is at a race on saturday so i dont have any time to test between now and then.

Im pretty sure im at 375cc right now, its written on the sticker on my forks but i dont recall exactly what it is, pretty sure its 375cc. If it isnt, should i just drop it down to 340cc as a starting point?

You saying i should use 340cc as a base? Or are you saying take out 15cc?

how can you remove oil??i'd like to lower mine a bit.thanks

Remove the forks from the triples, pull the vent plugs and pump some out. It can't be drawn out from the top because the vent passages take a right angle turn just below the vent screw. It can be added back through the vents if you have a small syringe and some patience.
