Oil quantity and weight for an r 35

Post by joelincourt »

How much oil do I use in the front forks on a 1973 r 35?

That's 1937 right! :lol: Might want to read through the Library for the R35 again...I'm not too good with German! My R25/2 shows that each fork takes about 150cc of engine oil after a rebuild. Your bike might need something similar.

There was no damping in the older R 35 forks, just lubrication.
