Depends on the fork. About 400-500ml. The fork oil level is measured from the top of the fork tube with the fork full compressed and spring out. Should be around 120mm.

OK so I hit a bump yesterday and my ass bounced off the seat like half a foot. The front is dialed in (in terms of comfortable street riding but not too soft) so what do I do with the rear? I'm assuming it's close to factory but being the 3rd owner I'm not entirely sure . 2007 Gsxr 600

First, you need to set your sag, shoot for 35mm up front and 30mm out back.

Then, set your rebound. You want the bike to spring back up as fast as possible without overshooting or bouncing. And make sure the bike springs back up evenly front and rear.

Finally, set your compression. Set the adjuster to the middle of the adjustment range, and go for a ride. Then, adjust it one click at a time either harder or softer depending on how it feels.

Just to be sure, sag is the two locking cog lookin things that need the C tool right? Then 3/4s socket on the adjuster for rebound and the flathead screw in the center is the compression?

The front sag is adjusted on the top of the forks, and the rear sag is adjusted at the shock collar.

This is for a stock height or raised bike. If the bike in question is lowered, forget the advice I gave above.
