GL1500 Fork Oil Change.
This applies to the GL1500 Goldwing, SE & Aspencade . You will need an empty plastic gearbox oil bottle. (This has a pointed cap that will fit into the opening for the air valve) You also need something to measure the oil for each fork leg, a baby's bottle is ideal as it will have measurements marked on the side (a very large syringe would be even better, if you can get hold of one). Put the bike on the side stand. Jack up the bike to fully extend the forks (front tire off the ground). Any pressure on the forks and the fluid will "squirt" out. Remove the front disc covers. Release the air from the valve in each leg, leaving the valve in place. Remove the drain bolt in one leg. Drain bolt is at the bottom of the Anti-Dive Valve. Have a container handy to catch the oil. You may want to tape a piece of card shaped into a funnel to the fork leg in order to keep the fluid away from the brakes. Lower the front so the tire is back on the ground. Sitting on the bike, pump the forks until one leg is empty of oil and replace the drain bolt. Repeat the procedure for the other leg. Remove the inner air valves from both legs. Measure the oil and put it into the gear oil bottle. Fit the tube from the bottle over the valve stem and squeeze the oil into the fork leg slowly. Replace the inner valves when finished.

Remove the drain bolt in one leg. Drain bolt is at the bottom of the Anti-Dive Valve. Have a container
