OK so you've bought yourself a motorbike made by Japanese people for Japanese people. The average Japanese person weighs approximately three kilograms. The average Australian weighs a lot more. Bike design often tends to favour lighter riders for this reason. And one of the ways this is most apparent is that smaller bikes in particular tend to have very sloppy forks with not much damping. You get on the front brakes, and they slop forward, which makes people less inclined to use their front brake - which is bad. Fork oil also deteriorates as a bike's life goes on. Refreshing the fork oil, and using a slightly more viscous oil, can make the front end of the bike feel a lot more solid and planted. Project & Project bike: So this week we'll be replaing the fork oil on Holster's ancient SRX250. Fork oil changes are a slightly messy job, and require the front end to be taken off the bike. This is nothing to be afraid of, it's actually not that big a deal. The process goes something like: 1) Elevate front end 2) Remove brakes 3) Remove front wheel 4) Remove mudguard 5) loosen triple clamps and remove forks 6) pop tops off forks and get all the oil out 7) put new oil in put bike back together In between each of these steps is a .5 involving spilling things and swearing a lot. Time and Location: We'll be at Holster's place in Noble Park. Post in here or PM me for the address if you'd like to join in. Tools and Materials - Full set o' toolz - Scissor jack and block o' wood - Drip tray and funnel - Measuring jug - 1 bottle of fork oil (15/20W is usually much better than the standard 5 or 10W) We also need to know exactly how much fork oil the bike requires. So Holster, can you dig up a service manual or find out (either in ml or mm from the top) EXACTLY how much fork oil we need to use?
