Perfect tool for the job. I replaced the hose with a transparent silicone one (bought at aquarium supply store), it's flexible and durable compared with the original one. After use clean everything with contact cleaner, store in a ziplock and will last forever.
Tool could have been good, but falls short with a syringe that fails very soon.
Although the tool is of a good engineering design, the Syringe makes it imlossible to use after only a few uses. Really sad a low quality part effects this whole tool. It could be one of the best in your shop if that syringe were of better quality. The plunger rubber loses it seal quickly, then cant be used anymore.
Just set the ring and it is dialed in perfect. The only issue I had at first was the syringe. It can be hard to pull when removing fork oil. However, that is just because of the oil. It works great with cleaners. I just pull it even though it is hard and it still sucks up the oil.
This tool worked well the first 2 times I used it however the syringe is a cheap 10 cent Chinese made syringe and it doesn't hold suction any more. So I went to the store and had to buy a new syringe. I guess I could have made my own tool for much cheaper then I paid for this one.
Same as another poster, the plunger shrinks and makes the syringe useless. I even cleaned out my syringe with solvent before storage. The metal measuring tube is really high quality, I just have to find another syringe to fit it. Really poor quality on the syringe, not typical for Motion Pro.
This tool worked great the first time I used it. After sitting for a few months with a residue of fork oil, the rubber plunger in the syringe shrunk and it no longer provides enough suction to remove excess oil.
Used this on 98 YZ250 and worked great. Very easy to use. Tried to used it on 09 YZ450 and didn't end up using it. This is due to the difference in the style of Fork. Both were dual chamber the 98 internals are just inverted from the 09.
I recently ordered the Tusk oil level tool, forgetting that I'd also bought the Motion Pro tool a year or two back. So today when I changed my fork seals I had both new-in-the-package tools to compare. It's obvious they the same tool made by the same mfgr and sold under the respective Tusk/Motion Pro brands. The ONLY difference: 1) The Motion Pro has a Motion Pro sticker over the place on the syringe that says "Single Use Only" and 2) You get a single sheet of instructions that will remind you of a "Captain Obvious" commercial. Now, I'm a Motion Pro fanboy and love their tools, but this case save yourself a few bucks and buy the Tusk.
