Is it possible that you are thinking of a different type of bike? Perhaps one with compressed air in the forks?
Because on a Rubbermount EVO Sportster, the procedure is exactly the way Del describes it in the video (except for oil quantity -- I go by manual specs). When you remove the drain screw, you do need to have a cup or other container under it as it will weep, but the screw does not pop out and there is no mist of dirty fork oil.
As for pumping up and down, I do that before the bike goes on the jack (I cut the tops off 20-oz soda bottles at an angle, and secure them to the forks with masking tape to catch the oil as it is pumped). Pump until you can hear the fork "gasping" both ways, wait a minute, and then pump again to get out the oil that was clinging to the insides of the forks. Then remove the soda bottles and used oil, put the screws back in (with their copper washers), jack the bike up to get the front wheel off the ground, remove the caps (yes, now), put in fresh oil, replace the caps, and lower the bike off the jack.
I did this just last week, and this is exactly
the way it was done. No lost drain screws and no mist.
