I hope I am not boring anyone. I do know it is rather mundane shit at times.........but back to the forks.

Filled them up with 30wt as that is what the manual calls for to the proper amount.

I read somewhere to pump the forks about 15 to 20 times to get the air out of them. This is when I discovered that one fork leg had more oil in it than the other. Seems odd to me. I drained the forks and took measurements in the beaker again. Hmmmmmmmmm. The correct amount. Measuring from the top of the tube down to the oil level was about a 1/2" difference. I guess the maching from the factory wasn't as good as they said. Me pumpin aluminum. It was easier to do both at the same time.
