I take the gauge cover off and take the tops off,there may be a easier trick to it,on my 01 i would put a vacum pump on the air valve for the front tubes,and it would pull the fluid up thru the bleeder screws,after i made up a little tube assemble to srew into the lower legs.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.

Sure they do $$. What year ? Just do like you always done. Measure what you take out , and replace the same.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.
