Fork oil amount?

Recommended Posts

You will need to order 2 ltr. (Qt) bottles of 5 Wt. fork oil.

Oil height can be anywhere between 100-140mm (dump) depending on what you want the forks to do. Lower oil level (140mm) makes forks soft and more likely to bottom and high oil level (100mm) will make the forks firmer and may keep you from using all of the fork travel.

I usually start with 130mm and test. If you bottom too much, add 10cc through the bleeder holes to each leg until you barely bottom on your biggest hits.
