    Does anyone know what the oil level is supposed to be? . The service manual of the c model says 85mm but the forks are different so I`m not sure if they`re the same level

    I seem to recall someone posting that the internals are the same, only exterier differences (fork tops and caliper mount positions)

    However I could be wrong. The parts diagrams for A and C model are on megazip and if the internals have different part numbers then yes, the fork oil capacity and levels may be different.

    Fork tops are the same on the A2 and c. The spring free length is different between the two. I`ll check out the parts diagram

    This is what google translate has reported. This is from the ZXR250A japanese manual found in the resource section. (Section 12, page 12-4)

    About 397 ml +/- 4 ml after fork disassembly and ALL oil removed

    Approximately 338 ml if you are just changing the fork oil

    upload_2019-2-4_22-53-26.png


    With the main spring removed, (under compression) 109 mm +/- 4 mm from the upper end of the inner tube
