Another, easier, way is to fill it however you've been doing it, screw the
damper rod cap on and push up on the piston all the way......... what ever
comes out of the breather hole (and hits you in the eye) wasn't supposed to
be there anyway. If you want you can unscrew the cap and see what's left
and that should be your refill level in the future. SUs don't have the
needle o-ring ala ZS.
