If the ride is good for you just put the stock weight back in it. Personally i would pull the forks off and check the wear items while you are at it. Plus you can turn them upside down in a drain pan over night to get all the old oil out.

What Frankie said but if you just want to drain and fill , use a cup to measure what you take out. You may need heat to remove the drain screws. A lot of guy use the HD SE fork oil to reduce the bounce of the stock front end.

I changed mine out after I bought it for 30wt fork oil it will stiffen them right up
isn't 30 wt fork oil about the same as concrete? i believe that that is even heavier than the se race (which is not recommended for the street)
