    Fork oil change - '87 K100RS

    Procedure for changing fork oil in a 1987 K100RS. Anything of note? Is it simply a drain (drain plug) and fill?

    How much oil in each leg?

    Thanks.

    from the IBMWR page:

    The only things I'd like to add .... is that those screws at the bottom of the fork (drain plugs) should be installed with great care and MINIMAL torque.

    Let me repeat:

    Really cannot stress this enough!

    I think you can strip them by finger tightening!
