Alright so I got a 2006 gold label in late october, and it feels like its locked out. It is extremely stiff and the only way I can make it go down is by bunnyhopping then pushing down as hard as possible, even then it only goes down like a centimeter. I though it might need new oil so I unscrewed the cap on the right side of the fork, and took out the piece it is connected to. I was hoping to see oil in the fork, but there is nothing in there at all, and I am pretty freaking sure that is where the oil goes. I looked on the manitou service guide and it says put 4.3 to 4.5 inches of oil (110 - 115mm) in it, but how are you supposed to measure it?
