Question :
user manual says : change fork oil each 30.000 km (18.640 miles)
Oil is SAE 7,5

Who knows the air gap height in millimeters ?

Thank you

Hey Marc, do you know where there might be instructions on how to change the front fork oil?

I'm at 40,000km and I don't think it's been done before....

The screw is an air bleed.

fork oil

On my hp2 I used heavier oil and a reduced air gap for better fork performance. There are threads about this on ADV forum. Much better. Richard.

yes, after a ride because the air has expanded with the heat.

you can find it in the manual :
