friend of mine has a 2001 rc51 with a dan kyles tune front suspension, does this change any of the fluid requirements or does it still take the stock amount of fork oil?

When I sent my forks to Kyle Racing, they came back without the oil lock piece (aka the hydraulic compression stop).
The oil level should be at 120mm without spring.
I measured around 525cc when I poured the oil out, and that's about what I poured in.
The OEM oil level for stock SP2 forks is 498cc.
They use the trapped air to act as air spring to prevent bottoming under hard braking.

I was at DK's last week. He told me 525 cc's. Got to watch the rebuild process. The oil lock goes in the trash.
