Corrected Fork Oil Specs

I've updated the fork oil specifications in the fork oil seal replacement post with the correct numbers. The amount of oil was correctly stated as 472ml. However the height of free space from the top of the fork to the oil should be 137mm, not 147mm. Should have got my lazy behind off the chair to go check it in the first place.


  1. can you please tell me if this 427 ml.goes on each one or en both "struts"??? thank you..

    1. It's 427ml of fork oil in each fork.

  2. I've been riding "Trusty Steed" for 21 years, 86,459 trouble-free miles ('92 Nighthawk 750) and only just now discovered your truly awesome and incredibly helpful site. Trusty Steed is starting to leak a tiny bit on the right fork. What seals did you purchase for your rebuild, OEM or aftermarket?

  3. Hi, so sorry for the late reply. I used OEM seals.
