Hi Thorman, upon consulting the svc. manual I see that it calls for 530cc of 10 wt at - 10 degrees C or 20wt at +15 degrees C. I seem to remember I used to run 10 wt. at abot 4 1/2 to 6 inches from the top of the tube with the fork compressed. This should be ballpark, you can adjust to suit your needs of course. Some of the guys from England that run the twinshock classes over there on those things remove one spring and run air. They say it works but I've never tried that trick. Got my own 490 going,hope to have it ready by our 1st event in Jan. Hope this helps, good luck....
