I have looked at my service manual and searched this site and I don't see anything about a way to check the fork oil. I think there is a little too much give (but I'm not sure) in the front forks. I don't seem to have any leaks but I'd like to be able to check to make sure it has the correct amount of fork oil. Is there a way to check that?

Yep,workshop manual FJS6001,section 14-16 says...

Pour the specified amount of recommended fork fluid in the fork tube.

302 +/- 2.5 cm3(10.2 =/- 0.08 US oz)

Slowly pump the fork tube several times to remove trapped air.
Compress the fork tube fully & measure the oil level from the top of the tube.

OIL LEVEL : 97mm(3.8in)

Pull the fork tube up fully.Install the spring with the tightly wound end facing down.

I appreciate the replies, but that only tells me how to change it. How do I determine if I NEED to add some or change it?

Also, the title was kind of a joke because of the requirement that titles be a certain length and my inabaility to read WHY the thing didn't post the first few times.

New bike don't worry about it----then at 50,000 miles--take fork legs off, turn over to drain, proper amount of oil, the right kind. Old bike try the 50,000 mile deal. OEM Honda hop manual handy I nice. I use gaiters to protect seals.

See post from 'The Bren', since you need to remove each fork you might as well replace the oil while you are there...

Is there then no way to check it without removing and disassembling it?

Couldn't you just measure down that 97mm or is it impossible to take the tube caps off and replace them while in the bike?
I'm interested in this topic as would like to replace my fork oil, but seems like pulling fork tubes out is extreme.
Know what the stock vis oil is (can't seem to find, manual just says Honda oil part no.)?

stanly,you will need to pull the forks from the yolk as the measurement is taken with the springs removed from the fork leg
