Well its time for my next project - my little 65cc Benelli aka Faust. In disassembling the bike and cleaning a bit I could not tell if there was oil in the fork or not. On my Honda Trail CT70 it does not have oil in the forks just compression springs and I don't know if this one is the same. Is there an easy way to tell if there should be oil or not?

Attaching pictures for review.

When I was about twelve my neighbor had a Benelli mini, prob same as yours. It was a cool little bike, faster than our z50. Two stroke.

Yep its a cool little bike. I think I'll go with no oil in the forks initially and then if the front end is too "springy" then I will drop in some 20wt oil.

Hi mate. I am rebuilding a benelli. Did you find any new dust seals?
Hey - Just resurfacing. No I have not been able to find any dust seals so I am using neoprene dust seals and running 4oz of 20wt oil. I was able to get them completely apart - have to twist ccw and they thread out with the spring and all. Looks like they run a little oil to keep things lubricated. Sent mine out for cerakote and will post the results.
