    Once all the fork oil is drained out, we are ready to refill. The 2013 and newer F800GS's WP forks call for an air gap of 61 mm when the fork is fully compressed and the plastic inner damper rod is full. To measure this air gap, you can purchase the proper BMW tool from your dealer (BMW Tool number: 31 6 551), use an aftermarket tool such as Motion Pro Fork Oil tool, or the newly-released Thom Rieck's multipurpose, eco-friendly, and dolphin-safe amazingly wonderful Fork Oil Poker Tool (Patent-pending 2019) available at only the most exclusive of motorcycle dealers for $24.95 , which is also known as a chop stick with a red pen mark at 61mm.
