Mean Street fork info?

Does anyone have any Mean Street forks documentation/exploded views and/or fork oil specs. I have what I believe was called the “Forkzilla” - 41mm inverted tubes with the huge 73mm covers. They are 45.5” long from top of triple tree to bottom of axle bottom. They also made these in a shorter length. I was able to get a hold of Mike Hanlon from Mean Street and he confirmed that they are really just standard 41mm inverted forks as far as seals and bushings but unfortunately he didn’t have any specs on fork oil quantity? Since they went out of business 6 years ago he didn’t have and couldn’t remember any specific info. I can measure what volume of fork oil comes out of them and go with that on the rebuild but I sure would prefer to have some of the company documentation. I’ve read that someone named “Hugo” also worked for Mean street but I have no last name to try and contact him. Anyone have any info? Thanks!

Long ago I saved a copy of this exchange for my mean street forks. Might be helpful.

Talked to Mean Street today, they made the forks for the 2001 / 2002 Pro Sport and any other BD running the 54mm inverted forks. maybe other BD non-inverted too.

Anyway if you have questions on your Dog, call and ask for Mike. Nice guy. Mean Street Products - Motorcycle Forks, Chopper Forks, Custom Front Ends, Custom Forks

Rebuild kit suggested for the inverted forks (seals, clips, bushings) is OEM Harley Davidson kit for 84-99 Softail FLST. This kit is for 41mm fork tubes, which is what is inside the BDM 54mm sliders.
Seal size is specifically: 41.3mm X 54mm x 11mm in case you want to pick up the leak proof moly types of seals.

Oil is 350ml (cc) of 15w Bel Ray Racing Suspension fork oil per shock
