98 yz 125 forks

Recommended Posts

hey im new to online forums. Im completely rebuilding a 98 yz 125. i have my forks apart and was wandering if anyone knew what kind of fork oil i should use. i dont race but i do jump. i have a manual but it doesnt give much specifics on what to use. if someone could tell me what weight and brand i would appreciate it. thanks

With the spring out & the fork compressed, fill it up with oil an inch or so from the top....

Pull the rod up & down & bleed the air out..

Set the oil level set at 125mm from the top.

(with a syringe, a straw, a wiretie, & a tape measure)

Or MotionPro's fork oil level tool:
