Oil Level (fully compressed, without spring)
Right Front Fork 115 ±2 mm (4.53 ±0.08 in.) (from
the top of the outer tube)
Left Front Fork 114 ±2 mm (4.49 ±0.08 in.) (from the
top of the outer tube)
Fork oil level may also be measured using the fork oil
Special Tool - Fork Oil Level Gauge [A]: 57001-1290
With the fork fully compressed and without fork spring,
insert the gauge tube into the inner tube [B] and position
the stopper across the top end [C] of the outer tube [D].
Set the gauge stopper [E] so that its lower side shows the
oil level distance specified [F].
Pull the handle slowly to pump out the excess oil until the
oil no longer comes out.
If no oil is pumped out, there is insufficient oil in the inner
tube. Pour in enough oil, then pump out the excess oil as
