    FOX Foalt 32 140 RLC reduced to 80 mm ...30cc or 20cc?

    I just finished working on my fork and finally installed back on the bike. It is a FOX Float 32 140 RLC that I made into an 80 mm travel. I called FOX if I need to reduce the volume of the fork oil from 30 cc to 20 cc and the tech said use 30 cc.

    Since I reduced the travel, I think a lesser volume of oil required is it not? I was browsing the specs on the other foox fors and I read the Fox 32 F80 RLC uses only 20 cc of fork oil in the left fork. What is the ddifference between the F and the FLOAT? Should I just stick with the 30 cc?

    AirSpring side assemblies use 30 cc oil, one reason is they to use a coil spring for negative pressure and it slide over a dummy shaft requiring oil for lubrication as well as the stanchion and bushing interface.

    But the F series forks are also air spring type but the F80 only uses 20 cc.
