Zero. I don't add air to the forks. If you do it shouldn't be much. I used to run air in my CBX forks. Have a special syringe hand pump to put it in otherwise you blow the seals.

6psi maximum according to the owners manual. I know some who put 10-12psi in with no problems.

First thing I would try is some synthetic oil, if you haven't already.
