Fork oil

Postby kybigmac » Thu Sep 24, 2015 5:50 am



Changed the fork oil in my 93 GW and from the looks of it the oil was original equipment. It was about the same shade of black as the bike and the consistency of water. I read on this forum how to do it and it went fairly easy. So if you haven't done this in a long time its well worth it and your suspension will work sooooo much better!

It took an hour or so, just took my time to do it right. It was the first time I had done it on a GW. I use to do it on my dirt bikes years ago. By the way if you have the air valves in the forks it makes it a ton easier.
