Default Re: Warning : Do NOT pour in the entire fork oil bottle!

Guys, if all of us could list down the fork oil quantity of all available bikes in India, we could make a matrix. I'm trying to get similar readily available data from other sites as well, but couldn't find any such data.

Service manuals usually have this data. Some user manuals also have this, for ex - TVS.But it is not feasible to list down the fork oil quantity of all the bikes sold in India due to a huge number of the models.

Or better, go to a friendly mechanic who services different brands of bikes and get the info. They will give you . Corroborate with few more mechanics and you have a pretty credible data source

But I would like to take the pain of collecting information from all available sources and list down with a single matrix. Mechanics sometimes are unaware of exact oil quantity and they do overfill the forks (I had this experience twice) which makes the ride worst.

In which case you either have to get hold of service manual,user manual or visit the respective authorized service centers and get the data.

Service manuals of most famous bikes are available online. You can start from there.
