The best way to do this is to get a clean containe and carefully drain the fork oil into it and measure how much came out nad replace the same amount.
I use a measuring cup from an automotive paint store.
Your old seals should be good but give them a good visual check first.

If you remove the front wheel, front brake caliper, and front fender and look on the very bottom of the slider where the axle came out, you'll see an 8mm socket head bolt. If you remove this bolt, the slider will come off.
But before you do that, I'd advise draining the oil from the fork leg and releasing the spring tension on the slider by removing the fork tube plug and removing the spring. To get to this plug, you'll probably have to remove the windshield, the nachelle, and the top cap. Then loosen the clamp bolt in the lower triple tree and allow the fork to slide down and out of the triple trees.
When you refill the fork with oil. Use the same amount and viscosity as what was in there. Thicker viscosity and more oil has a tendency to "stiffen" the fork.

SOURCE: how do I replace lower
Hi, i would advise you to get a service manual, but seeingas you don't have one.
First take off the dust cover, then the dust shield under it.
Below that there should be a retaining ring that needs to be compressed to take it out of its groove in the lower section.
Then you should be able to slide the parts apart.
Just be aware that there are another four parts in there that will come out.
So don't forget how they go together.
And get a service manual, its all in there.

SOURCE: 2007 low rider replacing front sliders with chrome sliders when measured fork fluid level on original slider fluid measured 1.5 inches from top of tube manual state should be 4.3 inches witch is right
was that with the springs in...fork oil levels are usually checked with the fork fully compressed and no springs...
