Easy fill Fork Tube caps

Anyone using this or similar? Not that I am changing fork oil all the time, but it seems it would make it easier.

Sure they would . Ya still gotta remove the old ones to get the new ones in ! Also the MoCo has updated the service schedule for fork oil replacement to 50k miles .

Was thinking about a change. I am at 16,000 miles and I don't like the dive and overall feeling.
Thinking about adding preload as well.

Type E Moco, is it 10w? Would you recommend any different?

Mods may wanna slide this into suspension, my bad...

I have a similar fork cap on my 39mm FXRS forks. Makes changing the oil easy - I like them. I also added 5/8" preload to my forks. It helped a lot and I like the way they are set right now. I'm running about half an ounce extra oil also.
