1) What weight/amount for new progressive springs? service manual says Type E which seems light (10w) and 12oz which seems a bit much.

2) Tips for draining on Deuce and removing springs

Thanks

I replaced the fatory oil with SE oil before deciding if new springs were needed. The SE oil did the trick.

I jacked up the bike, removed the top cap screws and removed each lower drain screw. I tipped the fork left and right for ~30 minutes each side to ensure that each tube was drained.

I use the markings on the side of the SE Oil bottle to suffice as fl. measurement. Work great for me. 100% improvement over stock.
