It's actually pretty simple. If you're pretty mechanically inclined, once the forks are fully disassembled, You'll see how the inner chambers come apart. Then they hold a certain amount of oil as well and are sealed. I'm not home to to tell you exactly how much. I have it written on the wall in my garage so I don't have to keep looking in the book.

 

Once the inner chamber is filled and you're sure they don't leak, then you just do the outer chambers just like a single chamber fork. I saw a better way to bleed the forks down vs raising and lowering the inner damper rod.

 

You pull the outer tube all the way up, place your palm tightly over the tube and press down and force. You'll feel pressure blow by your palm. Do this 2-3 times then check damper rod for slack. There won't be any. Usually it takes 8-12 strokes of the damper rod to bleed them, if not more.

Then just use the fork oil height deal to set correct height.

 

I, personally, don't change out the inner fluid on the 250 very often. I think about every 4 or 5 outer fluid changes.
