2013 Fork Oil capacity

Just wondering what the capacity for each fork is supposed to be . I changed over to black fork legs and I cant get a straight answer. I've been hearing 10.7 or 10.9 does that sound right?

The number of oz is just an estimate. It's set up to be a little more than you need then you reduce it to the correct level. You add that much oil then use a fork oil height tool to adjust the oil to the exact height in mm. You can guess but your front suspension will perform much better if you get it exact. See the service manual. There is a table and it does a great job of describing the procedure.

I'm at work right now or I'd give you the amounts.

Yeah. I just threw in 317 ml and called it good. Handles fine. Picked up a service manual today. Didnt measure like the manual stated. We'll see what happens.

Worst case it would be a little stiff. If you put new lowers on you'll be really close just putting in that amount.
