what mcomstock said but i will add one small hint: break the fork caps loose before loosening the triple clamps. you also don't really need the special float tool although it may be worth having. i've always gotten by with a ruler and small flashlight. just pour in the approximate amount of oil, with the forks fully collapsed without springs and measure oil level from top of tube to top of oil. adjust as necessary. i just use a large syringe with plastic hose to suck out excess if necessary.
