Hey Dood, I Had One Of These Bikes And The Best Setup For Me Was;

With The Fork Fully Compressed With No Spring Fill It To The Top Then Seringe Out 130mm From The Top. Use Maxima 5w Suspension Fluid It Works Well.

You should buy one 16 oz container for each leg to ensure your covered. I've used Mobil synthetic ATF on all my bikes and it works fantastic, as does most 5w suspension fluid.
