XS500E fork oil cc's ?
« on: September 04, 2013, 10:43:23 PM »

So I want to add a 1/2" preload spacer for my fork springs and go up to 30 wt. fork oil.

Who has the later XS manual that gave me the oil qty for my  XS500E forks last time?  :-[


I know I wrote this down somewhere.... I had it a couple of years ago, yet can not find it.  I promise to scribe it in gold and keep in my safe deposit box so I won't ask a third time  ;D

Dean, it is 160 cc or 5.41 oz.      Or 12oz per leg if you use shortened YZ forks!

Thanks Jimmer !   

I'm glad I have just this tiny little forks, I couldn't afford YZ quantities of oil !  I nominated your YZ/XS dual sport for bike of the month... what ever happened to that?
