1500 fork oil levels

Post by agedbikeman »

So is it a 94 or a 95?

My aspencade was registered new on January 2nd 1995 in France, but it must have been made in 1994, so at which point did the oil level in the forks change, is there a difference in the forks for these years, the part numbers all seem the same, or was it just simply revised to alter ride handling.
I can't compare the effect with anything as I have put progressive springs in today and filled the forks to 239mm from the top, correct for 94 but less oil than a 95 so I don't think I'm in danger of bursting a seal. Old springs were very sad.

Any input welcome
