Front Fork oil change is covered in the manual on page 226.  It calls for SAE 10W20 oil . 360cc oil per fork if your just changing the oil.  391 cc of oil if you disassemble the forks and rebuild.

As far as the clutch problem- I don't know how many times I've seen people with clutch problems because they didn't know about the pushrod adjustment. I've seen bike sold because of clutch /transmission problems and then found out it was just a pushrod adjustment issue.
Regarding the clutch push rod, I didn't think it would be the cause of the failure, I still don't know until I check it, I didn't touch any of its calibration when removing and installing the crankcase so I assumed it would be calibrated in the same way as before engine repair.

What air pressure does the fork have?

You might have difficulty finding a motorcycle shop willing or able to set the carburettors on this bike.  You've come this far - why not sort out the rough running yourself?  You could buy a vacuum balancer and a Colortune  at reasonable cost,  and follow Scotch's numerous and lucid tutorials on how to set up the carbs. That's what I'd do.

The truth is that I have always liked mechanics although I would not go beyond the apprentice level.

I am good, to a certain extent, at disassembling and assembling an engine, but I am unable to have the ear to adjust a simple carburetor on a two-stroke motorcycle.

To give an example, I adjusted the fuel mixture enrichment screws from 2.5 turns to 3.5 turns, turning a quarter of a turn each time, I DIDN'T NOTICE ANY DIFFERENCE, in the end I left them adjusted to three turns without knowing why.


I haven't had time to check the clutch yet, if I can get it repaired I know a couple of shops that will be able to adjust the carburetor butterflies and their mixture screws.

Only a Harley rider would even think of trying to open a beer bottle with the rear tire. It's a wonder they don't stick to canned beer. But then again, most of them open a bottle of beer with their teeth.

Last night I went down to the garage and adjusted the screw that regulates the clutch push rod.
I don't know if it's normal but the whole pack moved as if it were loose on the inside.

This afternoon I tested the bike and it seems that the problem has been solved.
I approached a motorcycle workshop that I know and the mechanic, a young man of about 35 years old, with wide eyes, made an appointment with me to take the motorcycle to adjust the carburetors.
He told me with a serious face that he also likes them. the difficult challenges.

Already back home I have noticed a Clack, Clack, Clack, in the upper right part of the cylinder head when exceeding 4000RPM when accelerating, before taking the motorcycle to the workshop I will remove the valve cover to double check the synchronization and the the valve shims.

Regarding soft suspensions like a jelly dessert, I think it will help solve part of the problem if I put the eye of the shock absorber back in its silent block, installing a washer will help me keep it in place.
