While the fork leg is draining give it a pump up and down a few times to make sure you empty out the cartridge, found out my triumph forks hold a fair bit of oil in there.Finally getting back to this.
How much time should be allowed to drain the oil out of the fork? I have drained the Left Fork twice now, and each time when I refill it, it will only take about 160 ml to fill to the 75 mm level. This is about half what the manual says it should take. I feel like I am missing something in my understanding.
Am I missing something?
(I know, I am just repeating my earlier question and hoping for a new answer, but I am frustrated.)
My repair jobs mimic the joke, “Mommy, can I help dad work on the car? I know all the words.”OK. Now picture what would happen if you had your 3-year-old do the job for you, with assistance from the dog. Now you're picturing what I did.
I never skimp on fluids...especially if they are rarely changed.I used BMW's new 11.5w oil because of Panzermann's positive review. Even if it is a bit pricey at $22/liter, you get to weigh that against the >$300 BMW charges to do this job. :surprise:
