It's a sealed unit but it may be possible...haven't heard of anyone doing it though.

Why would you want to ? - oil lasts for ages before it degrades.  :305:

Hi Paul have to disagree with you on fork oil lasting for ages, just had my front fork oil changed at 22,000 klms along with chain and sprockets and plugs, transformed the bike. Fork oil does degrade and ends up full of contaminants. New fork oil was better than the oem oil. I have wondered about the rear shock after the fork improvement, but that would be a job for a specialist suspension place.

Blimey even my Ohlins on my Tiger was showing it’s age at 25,000 and needed an fluid change.

Certainly for forks i’d Be going to a suspension shop rather than a BM dealer particularly when the bike is out of warranty.

Yep will have to disagree Paul at 18K miles the damping both front and back is not what it was when the bike was new.
