I changed the oil in my TU250 forks, I drained about 365cc's out of each and refilled with thicker oil.
When I went back to thinner oil, I read the shop manual, 2.8 inches from the top, over 500cc's of oil!!!!
Yes, can't trust them, that's why i want to do it as soon as i can, and get good fork oil in them.
Same with the axles, they tend to not grease them properly in assembly, and you end up with corroded and stuck axles.
I just need to check whether the lift stand i have is low enough for this bike. (And get the time to do everything.)
