Its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.

If you completely drain the old oil and are putting new oil in there is a recommended amount for each bike. you can go with 100ml more or less of oil, more for stiffer forks and less for more plush soft forks. you will need to check for your specific bike. also you can use different weights of oil. 5W,7W,or 10W are the most common. If you have no other way of finding how much oil your forks take most bikes ive dealt with take anywhere from 350-600ml per fork.

Changing fork oil

OK officially you are supposed to measure oil height. Oil quantity is not quite right because you cannot measure the amount of oil remaining in the passages or on the walls. its only a little but to be correct set it at 110mm from the top, compressed, no spring.
if you don't have the tool and don't wanna try to do it properly, 300cc per fork.

On my 05 kx250,im changing the fork seals-do you have to fill and bleed the cartridge seperately or just fill up the fork leg?

The best way to fill fork oil is to add the specified amount and let the forks sit overnight to allow all entrained air escape. Leave the fill plugs off. Ofter you let the air escape, plug it up install the forks and add air to the desired pressure if has that option.
