I bought the bike second hand and the guy had never done any maintenance on it. When i got it I took it to Motorcycles Unlimited and they said that it was blown...That was back in November. I figured it is just time to go ahead and do it.

I did my SV myself about a month ago. Had to make a special tool out of PVC to drive in new seal. It took me few hours to get it all done. Hardest thing was removal of the bolts from the bottom of fork tubes. Internals were spinning and the bolt did not want to come out.

For my ZX6R upside down forks, I went to Motorcycles Unlimited.

Fork seals aren't hard if u have the right tools..I ghetto rigged something instead of buying motion pros fork spring compressor. But trust me it's much easier and less of a headache with it
