1982 Honda GL1100 How much ATF go's in front Forks?

Postby chranwalke » Thu Jun 07, 2012 6:49 pm



I replaced the dust cap an fork seals on my goldwing but I dont know how much ATF go's in each fork. My forks also hold 27psi of air so could any one tell me how much ATF i shold put in each fork?

My service manual says for 1982 refill the fork with 9.1 oz (270 cc) ATF. It also says recommended air pressure between 14 - 21 psi.
I have to do the same job in the very near future. Hope this helps

Yet another (typical) Clymer inaccuracy. :)

The Honda service manual states:

Fork oil capacity (after draining):
1980-1981: 220 cc (7.4 oz)
1982-1983: 270 cc (9.1 oz)
