I have also ordered new front springs from Hagon. Do someone know how much oil I need? is it enough with 1 litre for them both? And how many mm from the top is the right amount? Any reccomondations, 10, 15 or 20W. My weight is around 100 kg.

Hi lonelybiker. Recommended oil is 5W. A lot of people seem to use 10wt to stiffen the front end a bit. I used 10wt by mistake when I changed my fork springs and it is absolutely fine.

My manual lists fork oil capacity thus:
XRV750 L-N (1990-92)................635cc
XRV750 P-onwards (1993-02).......648cc

Fork oil level:
XRV750 L-N (1990-92)................118mm
XRV750 P-onwards (1993-02).......116mm
Oil level is measured from top of the tube with the fork spring removed and the leg fully compressed.
