fork oil amount- 2006 wr450

3 posts in this topic

I searched... really I did

Shop says: 21.89 fluid ounces in each fork leg... when I drained it, it sure didn't seem like 21 ounces... anybody offer confirmation?

also- once the oil is in, I collapse the fork, with spring out, and it should be ( ) from the top?

I am getting a manual, but hoping to wrap this up soon

You can find free downloads of the manual in the sticky's :smirk:

Fork oil height is done with spring removed, fork collapsed and damper rod fully down. Measured from top. Will take around 600ml per fork depending on oil height.

5" from the top, collapsed with the spring out. Make sure you get all of the air out.
