08 fork oil capacity

Recommended Posts

I just did mine recently (inner and outer chambers) and I used 32ounces for both forks. I'm not at home so I can't look, but I know it was like 16 ounces per fork for inner and outer...Sorry I can't be more specific...

Can anyone tell me the fork oil capcity for my 08 kx450f? Thanks for any info
As twitch5 mentioned, there is inner and outer chambers. So you need both figures. They are in the owner's and service manual. 340 to 360ml in the outers. Inners I cannot remember.

The outer tube should be around 350cc,and the inner takes 170cc

I think its about 190cc in the inner chamber, but that doesn't matter. you have to fill in a tad more and then bleed the excess oil.

I fill every KYB cartridge to 135mm from the top (with rod fully extended). less than 140mm can cause air in the cart, if you fill in more than 130mm you will have trouble to get the base valve assembly in...
