Any easy way to add oil to forks besides pulling out of triple clamps and removing caps? Forgot to look to see if the bleed screw in the cap provides a direct passage big enogh to add oil through.

I set mine at the factory level of 135mm and worried it may be too soft for my bad to the bone 140 lbs.

You can add it through the bleed screw. 14cc is about 10mm in oil height.

I remove my handlebars, loosen the top clamp bolts and pull the caps. I have tried to put oil in via small bleed hole and it just takes forever. Ten minutes and I'm back on the track.
