The volume of oil is calculated by air gap. This is proportional to your weight.
BUT to make life easy, 380 to 400 ml gives a good ride across the board.
If you are planning to race the bike, I would sugest letting a pro do the suspention for you.
Although it's not rocket science, it takes a lot of experience to get it perfect.
Enjoy the ride

Get the fork oil from the Kawasaki dealer and he will give you the right oil and tell you how much is needed. The gearbox oil is 10w40, any major brand is fine. I think your bike has a oil dipstick? If not then the oil capacity should be on the casing by the oil fill. Worst case, ask the dealer while you are there!
Best wishes and I hope this helps.
Please rate this solution. Thanks Robert!

Hi Des, Im am Irish too, howya doin? The oil you want is SAE 10W-20. and 445ml if you are changing the oil. It can be more accurately checked with the fork removed and fully compressed and the spring removed, the oil will be 120mm from the top ot the stanchion.
The manual will give you more info on this and any other future problems so here is a link to it. Good luck to ya, and please rate me if I've helped you. Thanks

You measure from the top of the tube down to the top of the oil.
Basically take the spring out of the fork and then push the top part of the leg all the way down as far as it will go,then when you fill with oil you go between 90 and 110mm from the top of the tube.
90 is the highest you want the oil to be,going down to 110 or anywhere in between will make the forks plusher at say midstroke,so for instance go for 100mm as a starting point
