I have a 96 650 L fork and want to change the oil.
What is the stock oil level for these forks?
Is this measured at full compression?
Is this with the spring out or in the fork leg?
Anything to watch out for?

The recomended volume is 564ml - this was a little shy of the mm measurement so I added 2 more - It was much easier to measure the volume first, this enables you to keep both forks the same.

make sure to bleed before reinserting the top. Just put it through a few strokes...SLOWLY! or you'll overflow.
