00 xr70 how to change fork oil

Recommended Posts

I've done lots of work on full size bikes but never one of these

I want to change fork oil

only noticed a little seepage from top of fork by triple clamp -anyone seen that?

the seal area is bone dry

so what is best way to change the oil only?

I don't want to change seals if they aren't leaking

can I pull fork remove cap and springs -do they just come out top? and drain

any need reason to pull bottom bolts

What is good oil wt, amount and air chamber height

thanks for any step by step

I've never seen that before . Must be the o-ring on the cap ?

Yes

-do they just come out top? and drain

Yes

- any need reason to pull bottom bolts

No need

I forget at this time ... But kinda remember putt'n I think 4 oz's per side in mine ??

The weight of oil depends .. I have 20 w now in mine and it's not enough for me . :)
