Can you post a description of your fork fluid widget? Thanks!

A harder way is with a metric ruler, a flashlight, and slowly pouring oil in until it reaches the end of the ruler.

1 2" PVC endcap (Any hardware store)
1 1 'x 3/8" OD metal tubing (ACE hardware or hobby store)
1 stop collar for above (ACE hardware of hobby store)
1 3/8" ID grommet (ACE hardware of hobby store)
1 1' 3/8" ID section of plastic tubing (Any hardware store)
1 Syringe (Any vet store or place that cells horse supplies)
Drill a hole large enough to accomodate the OD of the grommet.
I drilled mine off center. Think about where you want the tube to fit in your
forks and drill the hole there. If it's in the center, it'll hit the damping rod.
Insert the grommet. Insert the metal tubing in the grommet. Put the stop
collar on the topside of the endcap. Attach one end of the plastic tubing
to the top of the metal tubing. Attach the syringe to the other end of the
tubing. Secure all. I used zip ties.
To use it, simply measure from the bottom of the metal tubing to the
inside of the endcap. Adjust to what you want your oil height to be and
tighten the stop collar. Add fluid, insert widget and draw out any excess
fluid into the syringe. Voila', instant, perfect oil height.
