    Default Fork oil amount

    I'm changing a bad fork seal on my 1999 GL1500 SE with a Roadsmith Ultimate trike kit which I believe has a 4' Roadsmith rake kit. Can anyone tell me the amount of fork oil I need in each tube? I don't know if the rake kit uses the same amount or more than Honda did on the OEM forks. Also, being a trike does it matter what oil weight I use? On my 1100 and 1200 I usually use ATF. Thanks.

    It still has the stock forks so normal fill levels and just like before different weights can give you different feel.It can be played with to get things to your liking.
    Do not argue with an idiot.He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
