If you set the fluid level by measuring fork compression. Then filling to that level below the fork cap. The air that is captive in the top of the fork will act as a progressive rate spring and help ride and handeling. I use zip ties around the fork tubes at the seal then compress to the stops and measure the distance the tie moved. It's important to have the levels the same. So even if you put in a measured quantity check level to top of tubes.
