Fork Oil Question

Hey guys, I just bought myself a 2006 Kona Stinky and I noticed the forks weren't getting full travel.. So decided to give the forks a mini service with some new oil. So I whipped out the old 7.5 oil (there was a lot of it) and put in some fresh 5wt oil.. Now, looking on Marzocchi's service guide it says 245cc/ml of oil.. But as i want to get the full travel of the for I put in slightly less, but it still not getting the full travel that i was looking for..

Question is, should I drop the oil level even more? the book says 245cc, I put in 210cc.. Should I maybe drop it down to say 180cc??

Whats your opinions?

The fork is a Drop Off Triple by the way..
