How do I drain the fork oil 89 yz250.

Hi, there does not seem to be a drain, is anyone familiar with this job?

You probably need to take the forks apart.

That's not a drain plug it holds the fork together. It's a cartridge fork. You need to purge the cartridge. Disassemble and clean is the best way especially with a fork that old.
