Default last fork oil question for me??

ok, i think i got it, changed fork oil last night, put the oz. in like book calls for, all back together and ready to ride, but, do you have to "bleed" air out like you do in brakes?? no bleeding ??, when you pump the fluid out and it is all out, air has to be sucking in,, no?? thanks

oh, forgot, do not try to put fork top bolt back on without the right socket, took off with big wrench, but next to impossible to get back on without socket, (ran and bought one last night), i also did not get any fluid anywhere, how?? i cut some big garbage bags, inserted, let all oil drain in bag, no oil on brakes, rotor, or any where, barely any cleanup after this..rambo

No bleeding necessary because you don't completely fill the forks... so air will rise through the fluid into the open space above the fluid.
