Question How much fork oil

I am replacing my forks lowers with new chrome ones. Does anybody know what the correct amount of fork oil goes in each leg on a 2007 road glide? I left my book at my dad's house in Florida.

Thank you.
Robet

11 oz in each fork.
Make sure to pump them a few times to get the air out of the oil before sealing them up and putting them back on the bike.

When I do it it is not how much oil, but how much air is left in the top of the tube. Road King 133mm and all others 142 mm. This is with the tube bottomed in the slider.

10.8 ounces. There's a measurement from the top of the tube in the manual as well, but 10.8 ounces is the answer.
