pre-'94 fork oil change
« on: October 30, 2013, 04:14:48 pm »
Can anyone tell me the major difference(s) in changing fork oil for an 86-93 model compared to the '94-onwards?

TIA

From what I can tell, the differences are the way the oil level is measured and the fact that pre-'94's have oil drain plugs on the forks.  The oil level on the pre-'94's is measure with the fork fully extended and on '94 and later it is measured with the fork fully compressed.
