Tiger ELM327 OBD2 devices and fork oil replacement
« on: February 27, 2021, 05:25:29 PM »
As part of my ongoing servicing routine, I want to next have a go and the spark plugs and throttle bodies, I see someone has produced a program to download to help with that and reset service lights ect. There seems to be a few people who have bought a plug for the underseat connector and had problems.
Can anyone recommend a good one please. 

Also Im going to replace the fork oil at some stage I've got a Haynes Manual, but can anyone recommend any utube clips?

A guy I worked with said he replaced the fork oil in his Fire blade, an older one I think. He said it was really difficult getting the oil levels the same in each fork leg, is that right?

As ever grateful for any advice.

I have just bought the bits ready to do my forks. New seals from Triumph (but only because the dust seals are all age cracked, the main seals aren't leaking), a 43mm seal driver tool for knocking the new seals in, 2x 500ml bottles of fork oil, a fork oil level tool (not essential but with not buying petrol lately I splashed out the 20 to be lazy) and in a few weeks (due to border games) my Wilbers Progressive front springs will hopefully arrive from Germany.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
