I would simple support the bike with the forks off the ground, pull both fork caps. Then, with leaving the springs in place, simply match the fluid level in the good side and quit while I was ahead.
Remember to re-set the length of exposed thread on the damper rods when re-installing the fork caps. I believe it's 10mm., but I don't have a manual handy.
Just a tip: If you use this method, just go easy! Adding 10cc's of fork oil with a graduated syringe will raise the oil level almost 10mm.! And it's a lot easier to add the oil, than get it out!!!!
