Bleeding hydraulic preload??

Changed out the stock spring on my '13 F800GS rear shock, for a Hyperpro today. Unfortunately, also phucked up, and let some hydraulic fluid out of the adjuster in the process ): It was blue, and quite thin.....5w fork oil maybe? Anyhoooo....any tips on refilling/bleeding it to function again? Tried a search, and came up empty.

Hydraulic fluid

Engineering supplied will have it. or use BMW/KTM mineral oil hydraulic clutch fluid. (Not brake fluid)
