    Shiver Oil Change

    Can anyone give me detailed directions on how to change the oil on my 2003 Shiver DC. Also how much oil to put in for my weight I weigh 210 lbs and best oil to use.
    Thanks

    1. take the front wheel off
    2. take each fork leg out of the clamps
    3. remove top cap (28 mm socket)
    4. remove the rebound adjuster knob
    5. remove C clip under rebound adjuster knob
    6. take top cap, rebound adjuster nut, rebound adjuster spacer and spring off
    7. compress fork leg
    8. dump used oil on baby seals and other ocean wildlife
    9. pump fork leg to make sure all the oil is out
    10. compress fork leg and add oil until the level of the oil is 75-80mm from the top of the leg (this has to be done with the spring out and the leg compressed to get the correct oil level)
    11. replace parts in reverse order
    12. drink a beer or 13 to celebrate, you are a shiver master now


    PS- I ran 5 wt moto fork oil in mine at the highest level and that made for nice quick action and rarely bottomed, good luck.
