    Hi lads! I installed the Ricor Intiminators about 4 years ago, together with their 5w oil. I can't know for sure, but I think the front is much stiffer now, than when I installed it. It really doesn't feel good on buHow often should the oil be changed when used with Intiminators? I've written...

    What's the fork oil volume in an xl1000 ('02 plate), and what would the standard oil weight (is that the right term) ? Carrying me round it feels a little soft, I think I'll go up an oil when I get it done.

    The AT is feeling rather loose on the frot end so im going to change the fork oil. So im going to use a thicker grade ... So do you add X amount or X amount of mm from the top of the fork leg ?

    I know it is a dumb question, but which side of the fork oil seal should facing down?

    I have a 1990 Transalp 600 and I want to make the suspension softer, especially the front, as it bottoms out on speed humps, even at quite low speed. (My previous 600 transalp didn't have this problem. I dont if the previous owner of my current bike had "Stiffened" the suspension up) Can...

    Having blown a fork seal on my Scrapheap NX, I am going to replace them. I was wondering if anyone knows the weight and volume of the oil required in a Dominator's forks. I did a search and nothing came up and I don't have a manual for the old girl. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers ****

    I am just in the process of overhauling my forks for the tracker build. The forks have uprated springs in but they have always seemed very soft . Is it worth using different fork oil???? I know the manual lists ATF but it seems so thin :o
  15. Africa Twin
    Fork Air Pressure - 0 - 5.7PSI Fork oil capacity - 635cc in each fork Front fork oil level from top of stanchion (leg fully compressed) 118mm Ok... but is that with the springs in/out????

    Hi All Anybody put Eibach for springs in there xr 400, any good, how did you go about, what fork oil weight did you end up with etc ?
  19. Transalp
    Trannie says 5W, has anyone used 10W? Is it too thick? Or preferable using 5W and increasing quantity a tad? Too much can blow seals, I know. Cheers guys

    I'm about to replace the fork seals on my 1990 Dommie. I see in the manual that ATF is the recommended oil, I have some 7.5 weight fork oil surplus just wondered if this would be suitable?
