Default Harley 39mm fork oil capacity?

I searched and found nothing. Rask website says 20w fork oil and HD says type E but I'm not sure how much to use. The forks are on my Bonneville, so I don't have a Sportster manual. Anyone?

I assume these are Showa forks? From my '98's manual: If the forks are "wet" i.e., recently drained, each takes 9 oz. If they have been disassembled, cleaned, and are really really dry, 10 oz.
