Fork oil question

I have an 02 WR426 and I am changing my fork oil. I am setting the level at 4 1/2 from the top and I have already gone through 32onces of fluid and the second leg isn't even full yet. does this sound right, do I use this much fluid.

32 oz's Sounds way to much. When you set the oil level, make sure the spring is removed. Compress the upper tube fully down. Fill the oil to the top of the upper tube and cycle the control rod at least 10x to fill the cartridge. Top off the oil again to the top and cycle the outer tube, no more than a 6" stroke, a few times. Measure from the top of the outer tube, FULLY COMPRESSED, and set your level. You should probably let your forks sit for a hour, before adjusting the level, so any bubbles can rise to the top.

Just completed an oil change in mine and used a little over a quart between the two, so you sound right to me.

Yeah that's what I got when I finished up. Too bad I only bought one bottle and had to do the mad scramble this morning for more before I went riding. Forks sure do feel nice now.
