'08 RMZ450 - Why 500ml of oil in forks?

I bought an '08 RMZ 450 a few months ago and am just getting around to changing the fork springs. The left tube had 500ml of oil and the left 450ml. Seems like way too much. The manual says the adjustable range is about 320 to 415. The forks have been revalved by Shock Therapy if that makes any difference.  

Wow!! Way too much.

 

I run 330cc 10wt in the outer chamber in those forks.Works great on big braking bumps(low oil height) yet still offers great bottoming control(due to the thicker oil)..:)
