'08 450 Fork Question

Is there an easy way to lower the oil in the fork? Thanks for any help.

short of taking them apart... Remove forks , remove air bleed screw , pour whatever cc's into a cc vial.

I've found that with the new rising rate on the 08's ,the forks spring rate is a lot softer than the rear. I upped my fork spring rate, left the rear alone.. I weigh 190 with gear.... good luck...

Thank racer. That's what I thought after looking at the schematic. As far as spring rate, I went down with mine, front and rear, but I'm about 15lbs shy of you. I had Pro Action do the change and revalve, and so far I'm happy, except I'm not getting full travel in the front, which is why I want to lower the oil a bit and see how it goes.
