WP closed cartridge fork oil dummy

Recommended Posts

In a bonehead, 12 beers in manuever,I placed one of my forks upside-down on its quick-bleed air screw and some oil leaked out.I don't know how to measure let alone add oil to these forks.Furthermore,I don't even know where I lost the oil from;the cartridge or the outer tube.I really have no clue and I can't even take my forks in to my local dealer because the place burned to the ground on new years eve! (spectacular fire video on you-tube @ kootenay sleds&wheels:fire...)I really could use some help as the snow is melting and I would like my bike to be ready to race....Thanks in advance.

Exactly how much is "some" oil? Was it a teaspoon, or a quart?

Unless it was like 50cc or more, I wouldn't worry about it.

I would guess about 10-20ml,I actually drained 15ml from the other fork in an arttempt to even them out.

Was the oil at the stock height before the mishap?
