When I come to do an oil change on the forks on my Coguaro I shall first remove the top caps and try inserting a rod to measure the level. Whilst the level might not be correct it should be the same for both. Also on some forks one can struggle to remove filler caps, so if you have drained the oil already you are stuck.
I have the chart from the manual and Cagiva elefant manuals so something should tally.

Here's a link to a copy of the relevant Marzocchi file https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kd01ms ... sp=sharing. I have a user's manual too if requested. I will leave the link open for a week or two.

A good read with some ingenious solutions. I hope you had a glass of Medica to celebrate.

Nice job you're doing there! Glad you are thinking of painting the frame too-if that bike had seen a British winter and the salt we use in winter the paint would be gone already. Original is great but new paint is better :)

Medica is for girls we drink homemade moonshine :mrgreen:
Moonshine is the reason for ingenious solutions.
