Servide and Maintenance requirements 9600km - 6000mi
« on: July 18, 2015, 01:50:03 AM »
I have not done six months, to ride a Brammo, and I am arrived to 9200km (5720mi), I will come next maintenance that is to 9600km (6000mi).

In the maintenance list, says to replace the brake oil, and replace the oil of the front suspension.

has anyone ever done this?

I'm coming up on it, (5400mi)  I did bleed my brakes before hitting the track, its pretty easy, I'll try to put some pictures up this evening. 

I haven't replaced my fork oil yet so I'll be interested in hearing how that goes.

I have almost 13k miles and I've bleed the brakes twice and the the clutch once. The forks no because if the seals aren't broken and not leaking then don't worry about them. As long as they are not bottoming out or something then everything is fine.

It is also required to repack the steering bearings with grease every 3000 miles.

I am about to replace the suspension oil in the front legs too, but there is no oil specified...
Wondering what is inside now, as the suspension seems pretty harsh, even in the softest setting.

Does anyone know what kind of oil, how much should one leg contain?
Air chamber figures?




Modifications so far:
Crash bungs
shortened chain tensioner bolts
GPS Satellite controlled chain lubrication system
Top Case

So did anybody get anywhere on this?  I'm going to do it before I hit up Grattan so if someone has done it, awesome,  if not I suppose I'll try to document all the things.

After some digging around I have a possible match for the
 forks on the empulse r, Marzocchi RAC 43's. There is a manual posted on Marzocchi's website but here are a few takeaways I got from going through it:

Marzocchi recommends replacing the fork oil every 30000 km (18.6k mi)

The oil is Marzocchi oil code 55 00 13 SAE 7.5

The oil volume is 425 cc's

And the air volume is 110 mm.

(Got confirmation that this is infact correct, 9/29)

Just as I spent the afternoon assessing the internals of the front tubes... LOL!

My brammo already has more than 30000km, and I never changed anything in the suspension.
The manufacturer Marzocchi says that it is only necessary from the 30000km.

you're right & even if it's not mandatory at this point, I had the feeling it getting softer over time. It's so gradual that some may never notice it. Since it's not leaking & it's winter big time over here, I may wait a bit if I'm not getting part in time. For now, i'm not impressed with Polaris support at all. Parts for 10 years, yeah right! ::)
