Fork Oil
« on: 07 February, 2020, 11:29:20 AM »
Hi All

I just want to know if 1L of fork oil would be enough for both forks or do i need to get some more?

Its for a 2008 CBF1000 A7 bike with standard forks

Many Thanks

Rene

437  +/-  2.5 cc per leg , 10w.  Fluid level 129 mm. So 1 litre should be plenty. Mk1.

 :451:Thank you. Forks are off, now to replace the seals.  I'll let you know how it turns out as it's the first time I'm doing this.
Regards

Typical - the pitting on the tubes are to severe and cant be cleaned, so need to buy new ones. 😩

Are they good enough condition to consider rechroming?
