DR 600 fork oil
« on: March 18, 2015, 11:55:02 am »
I'm busy rebuilding my forks and need to know how much and what weight oil to put in. The manual I have doesn't give the details. Can anybody help..?

Thanks, I googled too and came up with 536ml to 565ml also 10W. Guess I'll just do a bit of R&D.. :thumleft:

There might be different DR 600 models with different length front forks. The first info that came up when I searched had a pic similar to your model. ( I have seen pics of your bike. Am a big Suzuki fan. Have 2 DR 650s.)
