Re: XR 80 fork oil amount ?

I am working on a 1981 Honda XL100 was wondering if you can tell me how much fork oil to put into that bike?

Fork oil height is set to stop the fork from bottoming out under full braking, but allowing full fork travel.
If you don't have the specs just put oil in, put a cable-tie on a fork leg and do some hard stops. It's easier if you overfill as you can then measure how much travel you are using, subtract that from the full travel of the fork, and draw out some oil to leave it just above the bottom-out level.

According to Google the fork oil volume should be 145cc per fork leg?
