Never done the front forks before...any body have any advice or experience to give before I rip this bad boy apart??

Drain the oil out of the bottom, lay the fork out on a towel and as you pull it apart lay out everything as it comes out.

My only experience w internals is watching a friend doing it on a bike and then not being able to put it back together. I finally figured it out but took some searching online because he didn't have a manual(ended up looking up an EPC for parts to figure it out.)

If someone is willing to help, experience goes a long ways. Even when it comes to filling requirements w new coils. Just a thought.

Shes a little muddy still from yesterday

I got some new brakes on the way too...might need a new front disc cuz i think its warped...need to change the fluid too but there is a stripped screw on the master cylinder

rear drum brakes are kinda funky too..i changed the rear tube and when I put it back together the rear brake sticks...just need some adjustments i guess

Find out what the stock oil weight was, then go heavier if you want it to be stiffer, or lighter if you want lighter
