Fork oil

Recommended Posts

How do i change the fork oil on my 2009 klx 140? How much and what kind of lube do i use?

If you're asking all those questions either get a manual and follow the step by step or have someone else do it.

 

Maybe go on youtube and watch a  video or two and go from there?

 

Good luck.

Loosen top triple clamp and each fork cap.

Take the fork tubes off.

Remove fork caps.

Lift out the spring.

Tip out the old oil.

Pump out more old oil.

Freak out at how crap it looks.

Put in just enough new oil so it does not clunk bottom out too harshly on your biggest impacts.

Any brand fork oil will do be 100x better than the used stuff.

Try 7.5w, or heavier for firmer and visa versa.
