hey everyone,

i just noticed that one of my fork seals is starting to leak. i've replaced them before, probably why they are leaking :), so i'm fine with the process. however, i have +4" fork tubes with progressive springs. i was just wondering if anyone knows the oil fill level for this setup. for the stock tubes it is 108mm from the top but i'm not sure if i can use this measurement for the 4' tubes. 

any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey Zonker......I've always just filled to the Yamaha stick spec....if you happened to get an ounce or 2 more.....it shouldn't hurt anything. I'd double check with the fork manufacturer though.

Awesome! Just because I've always done something one way....doesn't mean it's right!
