Front fork oil level (from the top)

Hello hello,

I am going to switch to 15w soon in order to continue my testing for my track-fun bike

I require your advice, at what depth from the top the oil should be? (min/max/recommended).

Depends upon what rate springs you have?
How much do you weigh?
What course are you riding?
What kind of tyres and pressure?
Ambient air-temp and humidity?
Phase of moon?
