I don't think it is... I don't know if we get litres or quarts here in the US but I remeber both forks taking more than one bottle...

Yeah but you guys probably get quarts which are like 9/10's of a litre.

Just did mine not too long ago and it took 1 litre and a bit, but they are 48mm forks not sure if there is much differance in the 46mm

I also run mine at the highest level per the range dictated in the manual so it may take just more than one bottle... and I think we get litres here in the US.

I'd get two bottles, it always seems to me that one seal will start leaking again before the other and I routinely just do one fork as needed.
