16 OZ of fork oil? Is this right?

Recommended Posts

The manual for my 2000 xr250 says to put 16.13 oz of fork oil into each leg. This seems like a lot to me. Anyone have anything different before I fill my forks too much?

I did a search and there is a lot of talk about weight and distance of the oil from the top of the tube but I prefer to add oil by the oz rather than try to measure it from the top of the tube.

Thanks

Nope thats about right. Dont do it by volume though. Set it by oil height.

Using a distance measurement is the best way to consistent results. I guess if you have a graduated cylinder then going by volume would be okay, but if you need to add or remove oil for tuning its harder to tell where you're at.
