Well Ill be following this thread for sure. I just did the same with the 5.5" measurement and progressives. I havent ridden mine yet as im finishing up the front end new2u kit. I wouldnt think theyd be severely overfilled if thats the maximum amount. I thought i read several threads and seem to remember others saying to use that method. Unfortunately, when I filled my first fork i forgot to put the drain screw in and I lost quite a bit trying to locate my drain screw lol so i dont know how many ounces i used. Well, hopefully for our sakes, we wont be doing this again so soon
For a reference, I did use Honda seals and put in new bushings.
Oh, must have been asleep when I read this thread originally. Mine is an 1100. I have put only about 20 miles in it and si far ni leaks. I understand those instructions better now.Ill keep an eye on mine and see how it dors at the 5.5" maximum level.
