Pump the outer tube several times to expel air bubbles.
Wait until the oil level settles.
With the fork fully compressed and the piston rod fully
pushed in (Right Fork Leg), insert a tape measure or rod
into the inner tube, and measure the distance from the top
of the outer tube to the oil.
Oil Level (fully compressed, without spring)

Fork oil lever may also be measured using the fork oil
Special Tool - Fork Oil Level Gauge: 57001–1290 [A]
With the fork fully compressed and without fork spring,
insert the gauge tube into the inner tube [B] and position
the stopper across the top end [F] of the outer tube [C].
Set the gauge stopper [D] so that its lower side shows the
oil level distance specified [E].
Pull the handle slowly to pump out the excess oil until the
oil no longer comes out.
If not oil is pumped out, there is insufficient oil in the inner
tube. Pour in enough oil, then pump out the excess oil as
Right Fork Leg:
Screw the fork piston rod puller [A] onto the end of the
Special Tool - Fork Piston Rod Puller, M12 × 1.25:
Pull the puller up above the outer tube top.
Remove the fork piston rod puller.
Install the fork spring [A] with the smaller end facing [B]
