Looking at changing the oil in my MIR forks, manual states 160mm for oil level. Is that measured from the top of the tube with the front wheel off the ground? And both forks the same? thanks.

It is measured with the springs out and the forks fully compressed. The manual I have says 180mm ??

10Wt, but I haven't ridden it yet, its a work in progress. FYI its approximately 375mls per side, I just used a 5ml syringe with a piece of aquarium tubing cut 180mm long and sucked out the excess.
