Scrambler Fork oil quantity

Anyone know offhand the quantity of Fork oil to put in each leg of the Scrambler? I think the forks are a smidgin longer, and I only have manuals for pre 2005 Bonnie and Thrux etc, doesn't give specs on the Scrambler. I note in the book the Bonnies etc take 484cc, the Thrux 466cc. Anyone have the specific Scram capacity?

I like to just fill my forks with equal amounts of oil, not into this more modern trend of measuring level (seems idiotic to me...)
thanks in advance; looking forward to using my Ikon springs and some new oil, the old stuff looks crap after 20,000kms - cheers Pat

C'mon northern hemisphere Scrambler owners, wake up wouldja..? It must be dawn up there by now - anyone got the Scrambler fork oil volume? Anyone with a manual covering the scram? I'm guessing it is 500cc per leg, and have cut 1.5 inch spacers but want to get the quantity right...
cheers - Pat

Haynes manual says 517cc for the Scrambler. (The Bonneville is 484cc.)

Scrambler fork oil level is 123mm. Measured from the top of the tube with the spring removed and the leg fully compressed.

Ah Tango, many thanks mate!! I'd guessed it was about half a litre, but glad I waited to get it right now!
Vancouver..? I'll be passing through on my way to Calgary for some work collaboration in a month or so. Is the weather still good enough to ride or drive over the Rockies?

thanks again mate - cheers, Pat

DrPat, you're welcome. Actually I'm in Vancouver, Washington, in the States down by Portland.

I'm thinking late November is going to be pretty cold in the Rockies, with possibility of the white stuff. That's beautiful country up there, sounds like a great trip.
