The owners manual says to do the following if you don't want to remove the forks:
*raise the front wheel
*remove the fender, meter cable & unit, headlight, handle bar, fork protectors
*loosen the fork upper clamp bolts
*remove the caps from the top of the fork tube
*fully compress the fork tube so the dust cover touches the bottom and place a stand to hold it
*remove the springs
*set the oil level 68mm (standard) or 60 - 90 mm (adjustable) from the top of the tube
It may be easier to remove the tubes and you could replace the leaky seal at the same time. I did this recently and put in new springs too. It was my first time working on forks. With help from TT members and the service manual it was fairly easy. I didn't buy an oil gauge, seal driver, or spring holder. I used a ruler to measure the oil and a medicine dropper to remove any excess. For a seal driver I used a piece of PVC pipe cut in half then secured around the lower tube to drive the seal. Try a search on replacing fork seals for more info. 5w oil is standard but i have heard that 7 works well Good luck.

SOURCE: amount of oil in forks
The forks have to be bled correctly, then oil filled to the correct level by oil level (height) measurement. You need the service manual for your model if you are not familiar with the procedure. Since you asked the "amount" instead of "level" in millimeters - I assume you need the manual.

"wet" = 9.0 ounces
"dry" = 10.2 ounces
If you simply drain the oil then readd the oil, it is considered a "wet" oil change.
If you disassemble and clean all the components and then add oil, it is considered a "dry" oil change.

Good Luck. Steve
