    @paul.1911 bro, what should I do just for replacing fork oil.
    I don't want to disassemble entire fork, for eg, in my splendor. There is no oil leaks or anything. Should I just drain from the nut below axle and refill it from top?

    Depends on how old the oil has been there in fork. For e.g my splendor didn't get any fork oil change in 6 years . So had to dismantle everything and clean it.
    If your bike had regular or at least 3 oil changes in 4-5 years ( without change of seals ) then only oil+seal change is required. Dismantle piston only when its jammed up badly or tube is bent.

    You cannot drain by loosening lower nut. Only way is to remove fork , open top nut and turn it upside down to drain oil. Lower nut holds piston assy inside fork.
    Pour only required amount of oil in fork , not more not less.

    Don't loose that nut it holds the piston and you need piston holder to tighten it. Remove the top nut drain the oil and pour 150ml in each of them.

    i dont think any mechanic or authorized service centre might have replaced the fork oil in my HH Super Splendor 2006 model, so guess my bike is running with the original fork oil since past 10 years.

    Front suspension has become little hard now. Planning to give to a good mechanic for replacing the fork oil.

    I want to overhaul my 2002 Suzuki MAX100R's front forks myself. I don't have any DIY experience before.

    1. Please suggest which brand oil should I buy for the forks.

    2. According to the TVS parts catalogue, Suzuki MAX100R and TVS MAX100R were fitted with slightly different front forks. the former has the ceriani-type forks while the latter has ceriani forks. ( just wanted to share this )

    You cannot drain from below. You need to drain from top cover bolt. And refill 10ml less.

    Hai

    As per the FZS Service manual, the fork oil per fork is 459ml. You can use Motul, Endurance(Bajaj) or HP. They come in 350 ml and 175 ml bottle.

    I Used a measuring jar to get the correct amount of fork oil in each forks.

    Is Using 459 ml of motul 20w fork oil safe for smooth operation?
    I think that's too much oil per leg. Any personal exp.
