•Measure the oil level, using the fork oil level gauge [A].
Special Tool - Fork Oil level Gauge: 57001-1290
○Set the gauge stopper so that its lower side shows the
oil level distance specified [C].
○Insert the gauge tube into the inner tube [D] and position
the stopper across the top of the inner tube [E].
○Pull the handle slowly to draw out the excess oil until no
more oil comes up the tube.
If no oil is drawn out from the beginning, there is not
enough oil in the fork. Pour in some more oil, then draw
out the excess.
