Fork oil strangeness

Hi,

Decided to give my bike an early christmas present and change the fork oil.

Shouldn't be too hard even for me, but I am confused now. (I've read the posts in the LC4 thread)

After removing the springs I pumped and drained approx >400 ml from each leg. I then added the spec 420ml to each leg, but this is where I got stuck. In one of the legs, no oil seem to be visible, no matter how I pump (it comes up through (24) in http://www.ktminfo.com/partscat/Part...0899&CatID=556 , but then flows back and dissapears)

Just go and buy some more oil to add, or is something fubar with that fork?

oh, and merry christmas to y'all
