In typical service manual confusing manner, the smaller quantity is listed for disassembly and the higher one for draining

That will always be more than Honda calls for, but the fork will work a bit better set up that way. It will not hydraulic lock at 6 inches. I never use heavier than 10wt and prefer 7wt if you can find it. Try this and see if you don't find it works better.
