Yes, no, maybe.
I have a Fork Oil level height tool. Looks like a big turkey baster with a steel tube. There a collar on that tube you set to the level the oil should be at, from the manual , and use it the suck the extra out. Of course if you empty the fork tubs by pulling them and pouring all the oil out you can use a measuring cup to get the right amount in. The only thing hard to empty is the cartridge you maybe able to pump it and get the oil out.
I have seen a wooden dowel used to gauge the oil level. Too little oil and the fork will be under damped. Too much and it'll be very firm...likely harsh. I use this to "Tune" the dampening on my KLR add a bit and ride or drain some and try it. I ended up about what the factory called for, They some smart guys at times!
Best thing is to read the manual either a hard copy or online. It'll give you a better idea of what's involved. I'd rather do forks all day long than a valve shim job.
Or was that look THEN leap?
