Does anybody know how much oil i have to pour in my new 2005 Boxxer Team?
Could not find it on the rock shox page, only for the Boxxer Ride.Rock Shox said you need to put 220cc into the right leg, but that fork has less travel.

8 inch HC2 (2005) Team & World Cup
93mm Oil Height Rebound (2.5 or 5 wt)
115mm Oil Height Compression (10 wt)

That is what I'll run in my WC. You can use up to 93 in the compression side as well. I hear the trick is to push on the single upper tube to see if you can hit the bottom pad. If you don't feel a distinct thud your oil's too high. If on the top the stroke there is little or no rebound catch, it's too low.

thanks acadian, do you know what that means in volume?
Is the oil height you mentioned measured from the top of the upper tube down to the oil?
Thanks anyway.
when you refill the tubes, cycle them a few times to get oil in the assemblies. then fully compress the stanchions and measure from the top of the tubes to the oil (that's without springs). When you measure the rebound side, make sure the Perch is in the leg (little black plug that goes at the bottom of the spring)
