I searched for my answer but have not found it. Sorry if this thread is a repeat.

I'm installing the Premium monotube low (Harley) suspension in my girlfriends 2014 CVO Road King. Due to not having, or wanting to buy Harley specific tools for a one time job I'm doing it the way I do with my dirt bikes.

My question is does anyone know the proper VOLUME of oil for the left leg in this configuration. Inches from the top does me no good as I'm installing the cartridge with the spring already mounted and all inch measurements called for the spring off.

Thanks in advance for any help. Much appreciated.

Mono-tubes have their own oil supply, usually only need several ounces for lubricating the metal parts inside the fork leg.
If the H-D mono-tubes are similar to the Progressive Suspension units about 5 ounces is all that's needed.

They're not. The Harley mono tubes are not sealed cartridges like more advanced units. The just use the fork reservoir oil. Kinda halfway between damping rods and real cartridge forks.
