YES 100cc of Oil must be put in on assembly.
On assembling my Springer fork I was not sure if the shocks came with oil. They do not. You must fill them with oil on assembly. If you forget to the fork will bounce all over.
What I heard was that they used to come with oil, but because you have to take the cap off to install the spring tree, and people would spill the oil. They just decided to send em dry and let you fill them up.
