download a manual from this site.

capacity depends on how much of the fork you are disassembling ( i.e. - changing oil vs changing seals would call for different amounts of oil)

From the manual:

Amount per side:
  • When changing oil: approx. 490mL
  • After disassembly and completely dry: 576 +/- 4mL


In any case, measure the oil level as the distance from the oil surface to the top of the tube: should be 91mm (+/- 2mm).
