Could someone tell me the proper amount of fork oil that each fork holds? I recently got my forks back from liquidpain.

per the manual.

9-20 CHASSIS
• Tighten the damper rod bolt to the specified torque with the
special tool.

Damper rod bolt: 40 N·m (4.0 kgf-m, 29.0 lb-ft)
FORK OIL
• Place the front fork vertically without spring.
• Compress it fully.
• Pour specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube.

or an equivalent
• Move the inner rod slowly with the special tool ten times and
more until no more bubbles come out from the oil.

NOTE:
Refill front fork oil up to the top of the outer tube so that bubbles
are visible while bleeding air.
• Refill specified front fork oil up to the top level of the outer
tube again. Move the outer tube up and down several strokes
until no more bubbles come out from the oil.
• Keep the front fork vertically and wait 5 - 6 minutes.
NOTE:
* Always keep oil level over the cartridge top end, or air may
enter the cartridge during this procedure.
* Take extreme care so as to pump out air completely.
• Hold the front fork vertically and adjust fork oil level with the
special tool.
NOTE:
When adjusting the fork oil level, compress the outer tube fully
without the fork spring.

To answer the above question correctly, it is approx. 638-640ml for the correct amount to put back in. We put Garthen's forks back together after getting them back from chrome. To put it at the correct height of 133mm down (which if you read the above post Suzuki is extremely vague on where to measure from) you just add roughly 640ml and follow the procedures for getting the air out of the system. You will be with in 1mm of the correct height. You see, all the other manufacturers will give you a fork oil capacity to get you very close. Well I did it for Suzuki since appearantly it is a huge secret. You will not find it anywhere in the manual. So, for those of you who can do this work yourself (forkseals, fork oil replacement, rebuild forks) you might want to write this amount down in your manual on chapter 9 page 20. This will save you alot of time.
