If anyone has the fork oil capacity for the GL1200 Aspencade I'd appreciate it. I've loaned my manual to someone else and of course I need it now! I'm going to put heavier oil in (20w) and see if that improves the handling.

My Clymer manual states to add 323 cc to each leg after draining, or 345 cc after disassembly/overhaul. Hope this helps...:)

Hello Eamonn: I have a Clymer manual for a Gl1200 1985 Limited Edition.

After Draining: 323cc (10.9 oz.)

After Disassembly: 345cc ( 11.7 oz. )

I hope this helps

Hi Eamonn1200, you just may find that the 20W makes your Wing ride very harsh unless you carry a lot of weight. I tried 30W and it rode like a truck, then switched to 20W and still got a harsh ride on average roads. I'm now using Belray15W and riding two up, heavily loaded,it rides smoothly. With 10W it was a little too springy. Amazing how much difference a little viscocity can make in the ride.

Old post made new again. Needed an answer as i'm at work and stopping by the dealer on my way home. Couldn't remember how much oil to buy. Once again this forum comes to the rescue! Thanks, G
