I have the forks out and wondered what the fork oil amount to refill is. Is there a manual to download here?
for future onlookers.. smokin said the stock dog bones off the ZX fit and work to lower the ass of the connie, true statement. It dropped about 3" in the rear just doing that. I felt it was not IF but when I get out of shape backing up parking with a passenger and dump it. anyway sliding the front in the trees and changing fork oil. 35K and the oil is nasty. I also have a set of ZX forks I thought about putting in for the bottom adjuster (compression?)


Id be interested in a ZX seat to trade for a Rich's custom connie seat if anybody has a spare sitting around

appreciate the help thanks, Darin

For the ZG ( Concours ) it's 15 oz of 5 wt fork oil.


In 2010 they raised the amount by 25mL per fork leg on the 2010 and up units. That is all they changed and the addition of a 2 year newer tire and got rave reviews for the improved low speed handling.
So go with the 2010 and up spec. :thumbs:


25mL = 0.84535us fl oz
