Hi!
Does anybody know what oil level I´m supposed to have in an -88 RM80 35mm conventional fork.

There is a previous thread somewhere that said 90mm. I filled my lads to 90mm with ATF, and they look fine. I think the oil needs to be thickish - I dont know what it had in it but it felt very underdamped

Thanks!
What wiscosity?, I bought 7.5W at my local dealer but I can easily switch it for, maybe 15W. Come to think of it the oil I drained out looked really thick compared to what I use in my CR and KX 250.
