Adding Fork oil

Quick question on how much fork oil to add. I just did the film negative way of cleaning the seals. I worked really well. Now I just want to make sure I added the correct amount of oil in them. I went by what the manuel says. Add to 5.31" and that is without the spring in. I measured from the top with the fork completely compressed and it is 5.31. I only did one side because the other is not leaking at all. If I added oil to what the manuel says I should be fine, right?


Yes 5W oil at 130mm from the top should be good. I am heavier and run 100mm from the top. :)

Thank you very much. That is exactly what I did. I will finish putting it back together tonight and should be good to go.
