We recently found that important information had been omitted from our article on "Front Suspension Maintenance and Upgrades" article : http://roadstarclinic.com/content/view/143/128/

The orginal article only covered the oil level being measured for the stock OEM springs. This is measured with the springs removed, set oil level at 110mm from the top of the fork tube, with the fork collapsed.

The article has been edited to add the correct oil level for the Progressive Suspension springs that were used in the article. Per the instructions from Progressive Suspension, their springs will displace more oil than the stock springs. As such, the oil level should be adjusted to 5.5 inches or 140 mm.

Always follow the instructions included with springs that you decide to use.
