I want to change the fork oil and I was looking for a how to somewhere. Does anybody have it posted anywhere? I have the new style.
Not sure where you will find the post but I did it and it can be so easy or it can be almost impossible. I think it is in the help file by Wag.
Here it is:
According to the Boss Hoss Manual the forks need to have the oil changed every 2 Years on 24,000 miles.
If you follow the instructions that some of us got with our manual it will be a real bear to do.
I did that because I needed to change the springs, because mine had gotten weak allowing the top forks to hit the brackets
that hold the fender. It was serious because it pushed the fender down causing the tire to rub a hole in the top of the fender.
To change the fork oil it is rather easy by loosing up the top pinch bolts on the top tree then remove the top caps.
Then you remove the front tire, fender, top windshield brackets and loosen the other two pinch bolts on each side of the
At this point the fork will slide out of though the bottom allowing you to turn the fork upside down and drain the fluid out.
Don't take the fork apart unless you have leaking seal or need to replace the springs.
(To take the springs out you need a special tool and lots of help. I built one and if you want to borrow it I will send it to you.
It is home made but works like a champ.)
The seals are made by Honda and have a cost of $15.99 each side.
