[GSXR600-K4] How much fork oil???

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Chef, Apr 12, 2010.

  1. I use to have a link to all the motorcycle manuals in PDF format but can no longer find it. :roll:

    I'm pulling the front end down this weekend to replace a leaky fork seal, so I was hoping someone might be able to tell me the recommended weight and volume I need to be putting back in.

    Cheers in advance.

  2. 479 cc each leg or 102 mm from the top compressed with no spring
  3. Awesome, thanks Pete (y)
  4. That's awesome - you rock Pete.

    I was going to suggest you ask on www.gixxer.com - good resource and usually pretty helpful bunch.
  5. It was like 12-15 months ago when we were at your place having a spanner night replacing those seals! You gotta stop doing monos!

  6. Thanks Horse, It's only the front that is Gixxer, the rest is pure bred SV.
    turns out I may be having some issues with the head stem bearings, so your link may come in handy.
    Cheers. :)

    Can't stop, clowns will eat me....
