Motorcycle Fork Oil Change Part 1




What do you think about this video?

david haney: if you undo the pinch bolt on the top yoke , the top cap will undo a lot easier !!

Deerock: You should pump the forks to remove as much oil as possible. Also, you could always measure the amount of old oil removed and add the same amount of new oil (provided you know that it was previously filled properly)... eh?

Luke O'Neill: Nice work.. 1 bolt undone in 4 minutes.. World record

spy nasso: there are many posts , i didn' t read them all...
another important trick ...
before you unscrew the upper cup  ...
it's so hard because , first , you have to unscrew a little bit the side bolt that hold the fork on this place ...

thesuperdeeshow: You will need a fork spring compressor tool to do the job right. They have them on Ebay here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Motorcycle-Fork-Spring-Compressor-and-Damper-Rod-Holding-Tool-Kit-mfsc-/251680797288?pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools&hash=item3a99583268&vxp=mtr

Derek Wood: I may have missed something, but one thing that should be done, is to 'pump' the fork legs up and down a few times to expel all the oil.  Nice video and very helpful otherwise.  Regards.  D.

Callum Bateman: Cheers, very helpful. Where are you from/live? Can i hear some Scottish in your accent?

spacep0d: Wouldn't a front stand prevent the spring from wanting to shoot the fork cap into the ceiling?

Kalle Stropp: Made my day start with a big laugh, jesus…

dustin ayers: measuring in an  Erlenmeyer flask?Somewhere a chemist is pulling his hair out.haha 

Taylor Darr: Thumb wrench, really?

salahmb: Is it possible to oil used for bicycle Sazuki
And the number on the box

chuppa1chups: One of the reasons that top cap was so difficult to remove was because the upper pinch bolt is pinching the threads. Loosening those up may help with that problem, as I remember the top caps shouldn't be so snug to require a breaker bar. Also, a bathing towel is on my tank whenever I do work.

Carlos Lima: BETTER WITH A PISE OF PIPE

yhiissuchbs: A good stand with the front wheel off the ground is cheaper than repairing damage to the gas tank and/or stripped threads of top caps ~ Lengthens the fork and unloads the spring at least by the amount of weight of the front of the bike if not by 90% of the assembled preload. We all short cut at times but please advise viewers to use the right tool for the job ~ Invest in 3 cheap tools rather than one that is 3 times the price that must be misused. And +1 for PB Blaster for freeing bolts.

justinthor: most of the time my took bends if the bolt is to tight so that trick would not work for me, PB blaster helps though.

Carlos Lima: ITS BETTER WITH A PIPE

1966human: If you have a welding helmet around it would be good for removing the top bolt

MARK ROBSON: Thanks very much for this video it's going to help alot.
