fork oil for '73 XL 250 Honda

Recommended Posts

Hello, being new to this forum, I don't know yet where the best place for this question would be, so I just put it in the overall technical section (suspension) aswell. I'm in need of the correct fork oil amount for a '73 XL 250 Honda. Anyone? Thx

Remove the fork springs, collapse the forks, fill to within 6" from the top with 10w fork oil.

Hey thanks man, 6" from top, that's what I needed. You see, I replaced the fork seals and it had more water in it than oil :thumbsup:

If there was water or another foreign substance in the forks you may want to clean out the inside. Disassemble, then flush with a solvent, and let dry, or blow out with air.

OIl capacity for drain only is 150cc.

Oil capacity for flushed system is 160cc.
