Fork Oil CAPACITY 2009 KLR ?

Good morning.

Question of the day :

- How much fork oil (per fork leg) on a 2009 Kawasaki KLR 650 ?

Just replaced the fork seals and I am ready to put the legs back
and need to replace the fluid.

- How much ?

Thank you.

From service manual...

Approx. 500ml (16.9 US oz.) (when changing oil)
585 +- 4ml (19.8 +- 0.14 US oz.) (after dissassembly and completely dry)

more accurate method is to fill until oil is 135mm from the top, with the springs removed & forks collapsed.
