The oil hieght is 5.5 inches from the top down, with the forks fully compressed and the springs out. You can add more and take out oil if need be.

15W is a pretty good wieght to use and I used Belray in my bike and it works fine. My bro likes the Maxima and so do his riding buddies and the people at his cycle shop...
