Cartridge Fork Help Needed

Hello everyone. First off...this is a great forum for the 919! I'm in search of the pages out of the Honda service manual that relate to the newer version of the 919s fork overhaul and adjustment (cartridge type)... that is if it is actually different. The manual that is in the "helpful topics" section seems to only be for the '02 to '03 bikes. I'm in the middle of reassembling my '06 forks after a seal replacement and I'm getting hung up. I like pictures I guess... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Great video badmoon, I hadn't seen that one yet. Still one question...how much oil do I put in the fork? The '02 manual says 15.7oz.... is this true for the newer forks? ( All things staying OEM).

130mm from the top is stock but most on here say 140mm of a nice 10wt
