I now have Andreani cartridges installed. The instructions say oil level is 110mm air gap. Anyone know what that may translate to in actual oil? I will order the filling set but thought I may get the bike together if someone knew the cc's needed. Thanks

Hello

Measuring the oïl volume via the air gap is the best way to do so. When you remove the oil from a fork, depending on the way you do it, with or without emptying the damping cartridge, some oil may stay in the fork. If you pour always the same level, without taking this in account, you may have to much oil, which will make your fork harder on small shocks.

So, instead of finding the cc value, better use the right way to fill in the fork and measure only the air gap.

Thanks, I guess I will wait until the oil fill kit for the gap comes in.
