    Hi I recently bought a 04 crf230 with only 5 rides or so on it.I purchased bbr heavy duty fork springs and was wanting to know if I should change the fork oil? The seals are not leaking.Also does any one know how much oil they hold? Thanks, Kelly

    Oil level should be 5.7 inches (stock) from the top with the springs out and the fork collapsed.

    Stock weight is 7wt, but you can go to 10wt or 15wt if you need to stiffen them up.
