Getting ready to change the oil in my forks and want to make sure I have enough before I get started and have to go down and buy more. The book says 22oz capacity. Is that for both forks or just one side? I'm also going to raise the level to 3 3/8" so is 33oz enough or do I go get another bottle?

One jug will do it. I have filled upto about 130-150mm from the top with the spring out and the tubes fully compressed.

Good luck

I filled my '03 to 130mm using just less than 1 qt. If you want to go higher, or spill any, you might need 2. :cry:
