Default 2000 cr 250 forks

     

I have a 2000 CR250 and i just finished replacing the seals on the forks. This is my first time doing this and I am at the point where this book i have (not a manual for the bike) is telling me to fill the outer tubes with oil according to the manufactures specs. I dont have a manual right now and am wondering how much oil to put in the tubes. I have alreading filled and blead the cartridges. Now i just need to know how much to put in the fork tubes. And is there anything else i need to know? Will appreciate any help.

RT sells a special nut that will work if you took too much off the shaft. It is made to cover the some of the ID of the shaft to replace the peen that was ground off.

Oh, cool. I just ordered some other parts from them. Hopefully I did not grind too much off.

I have done my forks several times now. The max oil level is 424cc and the min is 386 cc. I have been using 400 cc to try and stiffen them up some. I also went to 10W oil. Be careful on changing the wieght. The 10W made them so stiff I could only ride for 2 minutes and I mean it BEAT ME to death. I am still using the 10W but have changed my clicker settings drastically to compensate. If you trail ride, don't use 10W. I was learning to jump my bike and was doing a lot of flat landings so was looking for lots of dampening. I have used both Amsoil and Bel-ray fork oil with equaly good results. I would recommend staying with one brand for consistant results in oil weight. I get my oil at Bobs Cycle supply i think for either 8 or 9 dollars per quart. It takes a little more than 1 quart total to do both forks. I assume you bled the air from the cartridges before sealing them up? Hope this helps.

I have my shock back together. Bought all the equipment to do my own recharging. The shock works wonderfully. All my adjustments changed of course but not the clickers actually give noticable changes. Get yer shock serviced once a year. The internal piston ring gtes wear on it then the shock does not work right anymore.
