1996 Vulcan Classic Fork Oil Capacity

Hello.

I just replaced the seals in my forks as they were leaking all over the front tire....

Anyhow, I cannot seem to find an answer on the oil capacity for them...I get two conflicting answers...one source says 10oz and the other says 12.5oz.

Any one have the correct answer?

Thanks!

No body knows? I was told 340cc from the dealership but this does not seem like enough as it bottoms out easily. Anyone?

My Clymer service manual says 10W fork oil, 294-288 mm or 11.18-11.34 inches when measured from top of tube when compressed without spring. Make sure you pump it to get the oil in all spaces. Don’t just measure volume of the oil, but measure inches from the top. Worked for me.
