So my beloved Xevo 400 is coming up on 50tkm - its been great - but last week I noticed that the dash is behaving a bit erratically with the speed and rev counter dials bouncing around a bit - and the low oil pressure light occassionally coming on for a couple of seconds. I checked the oil level - all fine of course but this morning the MOT invitation letter came from the local Swiss authorities. Im guessing its a little bit of water in the fuses or at the contacts for the digidash but it's been so long since I've heard from anyone here I thought I'd see what the clever forum people think.
Thanks as always ,

You may find after a few miles you need to slightly nip up the adjustment, if you hear a rattle over potholes this is the symptom. It's a pain to have to lift off all the handlebar gubbins again.
I have got the knack of slightly over tightnening them initiall so they free off after a few rides. Too tight though and things really feel weird, almost worse than when they are knackered.

Well I swapped out those out bearing the difference is amazing.... The old ones clearly have the pit marks and the top bearing was so ccaked up I couldnt rotate it with my hands... Well over due.

P.S I now have the 20W so after a few rides will likely change back to 20W. Just wondering if the qty or viscosity of the  oil is important when it comes to bottoming out?

Thanks gents, I had done a search and read a lot before starting. but this just confused me more... Most posts seem to recommend 90ml per leg SAE 20W oil. The manual has this comment
'Front fork
This is to inform you that, starting from frame no. ZAPM2700004008122, the front fork has been replaced to improve comfort. The new suspension differs from the previous one for a different stiffness
of the springs and a higher quantity of oil: from 268 cc to 273 cc ± 2 cc of Selenia Fork 7.5 W'

My frame number is before that mentioned in th manual so I assumemed that 90ml per leg was correct. But.. then the one leg on mine that was not leaking bad, had 220ml of oil when drained.

At that stage I had the 10W in hand so said worth a try . I have put in 230ml of 10W. I have not ridden to far on it yet. But so far the fork feels plush. The only concern is that, I can now with force make it bottom out, where im sure I could not do this before.

Stick with 20W. A few have experimented in the past to try to improve the damping and nearly all ended up back with 20W.

Hi Bobby

Did you go for that kit and if so was i a good fit need to do mine now also.



I gave the head a damn good squirt of duck oil when the cover was off the bars and the notchyness went.
Sold the bike now so really solved it.

If you don't want to wait for an answer, go to the Home Page and put 'fork oil' in the Search box; there are zillions of posts to trawl through.

Gents any advise for quantity of oil per leg please. Both of kine were leaking so I cant rely on measuring the existing qty.

The web suggested 20w. My local bike shop only stocks 10w should I drive .... or wait for the correct stuff to come in?

Advice appreciated
