Top Out Spring Mod Service

I took my forks out to service them because a wiper seal was leaking. With the new springs, gold valves and the top out spring mod....what is the proper oil level?

I looked on Race Tech's website and there are no specification there.

If anyone has this modification done, what is the proper oil level?

Thanks Gents.

My oil level is 120mm with aftermarket cartridges, and top springs about 20mm long.
Used on the street, so the oil level is a bit higher.

Just out of curiosity are you using spacers with the cut-down top-out springs?
