Changing Fork Fluid On Touring Models. A Pain No More.

JIMS_VacuumFrom JIMS USA another “time saver” to do the job right and fast. If you ever tried, the job of changing the fork fluid on models with fairings can be intimidating and take hours.

This patent pending tool will eliminate the need to remove the fairings on all touring bikes to change the fork oil.  With the Jim’s Vacuum Fed Fork Filling Tool it should take about 30 minutes to perform the service compared to 2.2 hours without it.

To drain the fork, simply insert the tapered fitting into the drain hole and create a vacuum using a standard Mityvac hand pump. Once you reach approximately 23 lbs. of vacuum pressure rotate the valve and instantly the vacuum will draw the pre-measured amount of fork fluid into the fork tube.

Use on all common damper tube type fork assembly. Warning: this tool is not for use on motorcycles using cartridge type forks or inverted fork assemblies. This tool is designed for use in conjunction with a Mityvac tool No. 741, which is available separately.  For more information contact Jim’s USA at or call 805-482-6913.

    Just in time for me as I will have fork fluid changes coming up as part of my scheduled work maintaining both my FLHT’s.
    This will sure to be a Great Time Saver.
    My past experience with JIMS assures me that it will be a quality product.
