2000 KX65 fork oil

Does anybody how much oil to put in the forks of the 2000 KX65. Preferably in inches.

Depends on the weight of your rider. 10 wt oil 125-130mm from top of fork tube(with springs removed and fully compressed) is probably about right

It is right , your can run from 110mm to 130mm from the top of the fork tube [compressed and springs out] the more oil the stiffer the forks will get and as for the weight of the oil its up to you .
KX 65 forks are a very basic front fork , its trial and error on the set up you like.
But you can't screw them up just keep trying till you find the setting you like.
