1990 YZ 250 Fork Oil Level

Can anybody tell me how much fork oil goes in a 1989 yz250 or where online I can find this information? My brother doesnt have a manual for his bike yet.

I have a 92, and with the outer tube all the way down, and no spring installed, I set it at 3.5" from the top.

Otherwise, I think mine calls for 18oz. of oil

Hope that helps

Thanks for the reply. I had a suspension shop tell me to try 100mm which is almost 4 inches. So if we get it between 3.5 - 4 inches it should be good to go. :thumbsup:

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
