If not, something we did in the "old" days was to siphon the fluid and refill. I know you don't get it all, but like Joe said......what's the purpose?
Joezenbiker said:Adrian...To my knowledge, the lower legs on the late model forks are solid so that drilling and tapping will be useless. The fluid lives in the UPPER static portion of the forks and, therefore cannot ve accesssed via the lower legs...Joe
PS. I don't think that black fork oil means bad fork oil. Probably just rubber material from the seals which is non abrasive and of no consequence. If I change my synthetic engine oil at 2000 miles, it's black but probably very functional....Joe
