Suspension on 2007 TE-510

Recommended Posts

Ok , I'm a newbie. So be gentle. I have a 2007 TE-510 with the front forks seals leaking. I have the new seals but I have several questions, also I don't have any kind of manual. First , what weight of fork oil is recommended and how much oil do you put in the tube. Should the tube be fully extended when filling. Any advise would greatly appreciated.:smirk::smirk:

5wt to 10wt Oil. I use 7.5 wt. which is what the manual recommends.

Fill tube with the fork compressed and spring out. Actuate the rod 15-20 times and refill and repeat. Then actuate the outer leg 10-15 time being careful not go go full extension.

Hieght for oil (stock ) is 120MM from top. I use the top of a squirt bottle and mark the tube 120mm from the bottom. Then slide the tube into the fork and pump out excess oil. Works Great!!

Should be plenty. Tuner I used said that any fork oil will work fine.
