04 cr 450 stock fork oil change

Recommended Posts

I changed my fork oil for the 1st time. The manual says standard oil capacity is 14.1 oz. So thats what i put in it, i let it drain for about 20 min the manual says there is about 12 cc in it. I weigh about 180 with all my gear. Is this too much oil? Thanks

The proper amount of fork oil is subjective since the remaining airspace acts as a cusion. That's probably why no one has jumped in with a difinitive answer.

I can tell you this, I had 440cc of oil in mine and it was WAY to harsh. Went to 400cc and it was WAY softer, I think I will end up around 410cc's. So it appears to be somewhat of a trial and error for what you personally like.
