28)

 

I  bouht a small suction pump that I use to get the right fork oil level.

Remember:
the fork must
be fully compressed when measuring the fluid level.

 

 

I make a mark on the suction pump hose e.t. 5.6" and put the hose into the fork tube until the mark are at the top of the fork tube and suck up superfluous oil.

 

 

This is how I do it.
Its not 100% "after the book" so its up to you to consider what way is the best
