The 03-04 1300R/S service manual (available as a download on this site) states:
"Compress the fork tube fully. Measure the oil level from the top of the fork tube. Fork Fluid level should be 135mm (5.31in)...Then (uncompress) the fork and install the fork spring, with the tightly wound coil side facing down."
I've wondered before. What the measurement should be, IF I remove the spring, AND leave the forks installed with the tube uncompressed? is it the same for both 1800 and 1300?
