PE175T Fork oil level and weight
« on: June 29, 2019, 04:46:52 PM »
Howdy. Looking at doing the forks for a mate's PE175T and cant find a manual for it anywhere. Can anyone tell me what weight and volume in each fork leg please?

outside of factory numbers you cant go past the 150mm down from top of tubes, no springs and forks fully collapsed. i would use 10 wt in the 75 85 kg mark (remember bum bags weigh a bit) 7.5 for under and 12.5 for over....
