I was just wondering if you can add fork oil through the air bleed screw on the 06 450 sss forks. I was wanting the mid and past stroke to be a little more firm. So I was going to start with 5cc added to each leg.

You can, but understand that it only adds to the outer chamber. The outer does none of the damping except for the hydraulic bottoming buffers. The only thing you would be doing by this is increasing the effective rate of the "air spring" in the fork by decreasing the air space available. Kind of like raising the compression ratio, really.
