Re: 94 900rr fork oil?how much

There can be a difference from 900rr to 900rr in how much fork oil is required. I think Honda calls out a spec for how high the oil level is to be. For that you need a long steel ruler or tape measure ( from what i hear those will suffice ), or a MotionPro fork oil level tool.

I just put 17 oz in each leg, but my bike handles crappy right now too... maybe i should have bought the oil level tool lol.

This is what the honda manual says about it:
Fork Oil level (93-94) 509cc (17.2 US ounce)
Fork Oil level (95-99) 564cc (19.1 US ounce)


More of my notes below:If you have aftermarket fork springs this will be different and you shouldn't really go by the Honda specs once any of the internals have been changed from oem to aftermarket. Then you just use the Honda specs as a starting/reference point. Honda calls for 8wt fork oil, but i used 10wt and it seems fine. Just don't buy cheap fork seals or you'll run up against a big problem... sticktion. Use oem seals.


Dang! No wonder my front end handles like crap. I'll be fixing that real soon.

Re: 94 900rr fork oil?how much

Forks making any noises? I once tore down a pair of Kawi ZX9 forks that had been leaking. The owner just kept on riding and riding and riding it. Upon tear down one of the fork springs had rubbed against the fork tube so much that the spring was flat on one side where it should have been round.
