If you get the sevice manual or contact a dealer to get the correct oil amount for your bike, they need to know the model and year, you have to have the forks off the bike. take the fork caps off, take the springs out compress the upper fork tube all the way and add the specified oil. if they also give you the measured amount from the top that's the best way to get both fork oil levels exact. there is a special tool that you set the oil level in millimeters and it sucks out the oil to the right level, but before you do that step after adding the oil always pull and push on the cartage rod several times to remove air from the cartage tube. you will hear the air coming out and you will feel the changes in the cartage rod as the cartage tube fills up with oil and the air is removed.
something i'm confussed on though is if you replaced a seal you would have had to brake down the fork to replace it. you would have poored the oil into a container, cleaned all the internal parts,and used a fork seal driver to install the new seal. part of your question asks where do i put the oil in? thats in the open end of the fork after you have taken off the fork cap. It sounds to me like you only replaced the dust seal on one fork. that is not going to fix your leaking fork. you need to replace the oil seal thats pressed inside of the top fork tube.

Starter motor check for worn out carbon contacts.Also it's wiring and the starter relay.The regulator/rectifier is charging efficiently the battery?

I agree with Rocky Boy.. on the timing. I use a light or buzzer to static set the timing on a new rebuild. You will get close to perfect this way. Also be sure there are no intake leaks at the carb to head fit, Since your bike isn't running this is hard to check.
Does it fire or "bump" ? If so you can put a small amount of gas into the spark plug hole, put the plug back on, kick it over or just use the starter..
Other problems I have had with bikes are the condensors.. you have electronic ignition.. was everything working before the rebuild? If it was then your electics are fine..
Cleaning the carb is easy.. you may just want to run some carb cleaner through it and then blow it out.. if you don't have a compressor use a can of Dust Off .. wear safty glasses when blowing the carb out.. I know about getting carb cleaner in my eyes.. leave the main jet alone.. try starting fluid as a last resort.. and don't use too much.. a 1-2 seconf blast.. let it sit for 10-15 sec. and then start the bike.
