1981 GL1100 Fork Oil Change

Postby tarheel-cowboy » Fri Mar 22, 2013 8:38 pm



Hello again,
Does anyone know the amount of oil that is in the forks of the 1981 Interstate?
My service manual doesn't say.

And 82-__ ? = 9.1 oz. Does that include the 83 ?? The SM does not list an 83 model in section 12-6 Fork Oil Replacment. :? :!:

As I am presently attempting this 3 days before a serious long distance ride, I am confused over this quantity of displacement of oil.
Guessing is never a good thing. :(

1982 and 1983 are the same. 9.1oz. In the manual 82- designates 1982 and beyond. If there is a change it will be listed.
