Hi , I want to replace the oil in the stock rear shock on my 1500 wing.

I have progressive air shocks fitted but I want to experiment with the old set up.

Does anyone know what the oil quantity and type I should use, and also is it just a a case of draining the old oil through the air connection and then re-filling through the same.

cheers.

The air shock takes 140cc of Pro Honda Susopension Fluid SS-7, or equivalent.

I suspect it'll be far easier to obtain the equivalent, such as some ATF (Dexron III)

Thanks for the info, can I replace the oil without stripping down the shock ?

If I pour it into the air hose connection. It looks impossible to remove the

circlip to dismantle the shock.

If you can get it in there that way, I don't see why not.

Honda suggest you do it as follows. Having never done that, I don't know what to tell you, but I would try it through the air connection 1st. :?

There is a 10mm drain bolt at the end of each fork leg. It's a slow drain, but it does eventually get all the old oil out.

He's talking about replacing the oil in the rear shocks .... not the front forks.
