Fork oil height range ?

Hi people, just setting my spare forks up for different terrain than my normal forks.

I have the spring rate where I want it as I was running softer springs which bottomed a lot and were to soft, I've put the next springs up in and still running 370 ml oil and now I can't bottom out at all. I have 3 inches travel left that I don't use.

I assume I could swap just one fork spring to the softer ones and see how I go or change my fork oil capacity.

Question is what safe range can I work in for oil capacity ? I was thinking of starting at 300 ml per leg and adding as I go at the track?

Is 300 ml too low to start?

Thanks a lot


Depends in the forks your manual well offer the range

370 cc sounds high. Standard is 350.

Gonna start with 300 ml then work my way up in 5 ml increments I reckon
