Default fork oil level?

     

I'm going to change the fork oil in my 03 crf450. I'm new to the showa forks having been on kawis for years.

Is the fork oil level (ex. 390 cc's) the level in just the outer chamber or inner and outer combined? It sounds like the inner chamber gets filled to the specified height then bleed off the excess oil. Then fill outer chamber with desired amount 390,400,412 cc , etc.

The manual also gives a time/temp chart for how much oil will be left in the fork when held upside down. I guess this affects overall oil height.

I do most of my suspension servicing myself but am new to the twin chamber forks.Any help would be appreciated.

It's just for the outer chamber. You got it right, go ahead and dig in.
