just take it to a shop bro. its much easier. i am very mechanically inclined, i fix cars for a living, but i realize that cars n bikes are different worlds.

i hardly ever take my bike to the shop for anything as i would rather do it myself, and save money and have that satisfaction.

but you gotta draw a line, for me forks were sent to the shop (i took them off the bike which did save some money)

but if u MUST do it yourself get ready for alot oftime research and frustration and lots of re-dos til you get it right

Sorry brah! But youll need the fork seal driver and some other things. Trying to do it yourself with out the correct stuff is asking for trouble. Since appear to be a stunter talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and tell em you want the "prodigy" special. Its the forks done up nice with all the racetech internals with much heavier springs. It was a night and day difference on my F4i front end.
