I have an '03-A .......... the service manual says the fork oil should be 85mm (3.3 inches) from the top of the fork.

I have the Progressive lowering front springs ........... and i have the level at the recommended 5.5 inches from the top; using screeming eagle heavy oil.

Are you talking about an R set of forks? If so:
Left 80 mm
Right 122 mm

Thanks Stang, is this the updated measurement?
Those numbers are in my service manual. I remember a thread talking about new numbers and I would have changed it in the manual to the new numbers if they were wrong.
I am trying to locate the thread but there are many out there.
Sorry.
