Fork oil capacity please
« on: March 25, 2018, 08:05:06 am »
Hi All

I see my right fork seal on my 14 GS1200 adv LC is starting leak ever so slightly. Before this gets worse which it will definately do i want to replace the fork seals. I understand how to do the job but cannot find any information on the spec of fork oil too be used and how much oil per fork.

Does anyone here perhaps know the following:

What weight of fork oil is recommended?
How much fork oil per fork is required?

Kind Regards
Safety Steve

So it hasn't changed for 20 years basically.  :biggrin: ;)
When is this "Old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
