    Hey guys maybe here someone can help me whit some wisdome! I am doing my forks I have revalve and resprong but when I see in the service manual how much oil you need it doesn`t really explain how much for either the 00-01 or 02 it only said 135mm, can anyone here clarifide that for me, thanks in advance:beer:
  2. That is the air gap...135mm. You need to fill with fork oil and leave 135mm air gap at the top of the fork.

    Well actually you remove the springs and leave the cartridge in. Then you collapse the fork and measure the gap from oil to top of outer tube ( the air gap ).

    I have done this it just din`t understad if this gap is for a sp-1 or sp-2, the reason I ask is b/c I have seen in other treads that the sp-1 forks are longer that the sp-2, that`s why am a bit confuse....:confused:
