    Expert fork question, How many mL's of oil?

    Hi, I have a 29er Recon silver tk that I upgraded with the correct motion control damper which I believe is the same as the revelation ( dont quote me) .

    I has 100mm of travel I however do not know how much fluid to add to the compression chamber now.

    Help! Thanks in advance

    A Recon Silver and parts from a Revelation are not compatible. Sorry to break the news you but its not going to work. It would only work if you had a Recon Gold.

    It works I've tried it, I eyeballed the correct amount of oil.
    I just do not remember what 2 forks are compatible, the recon silver being one of them.

    Thanks for the link with that being said I think it's the Argyle, Should I just use the same amount as the Argyle?

    You wont get good performance. The ID of the steel Recon Silver stanchion tubes is larger than the ID of the Revelations Aluminum stanchion tubes. Oil will pass around the piston rather than through it. You can try it though.

    The oil level should be for your recon, changing the damper wont change it.
