set you bike up on a stand so the front wheel is off the ground. disconnet your brake cable at the bottom near the tire. Remove front wheel. Remove the 2 bolts at the top of the forks at the top triple tree. Slide the rubber dust boot downward off of the fork leg (may take a little persuasion but you should be able to twist it off by hand most of the time). Next you'll find a c-clip holding everything in place. Remove the c-clip and the internals will fall/ slide right out of the bottom of the fork tube. The whole internal assembly will probably be nice and greasy so you can wipe that off if you want to make an effort to keep things clean. You will see where the spring basically screws onto 2 pieces at both end of the spring. Just unscrew and install the new spring snugging it up. You can only tighten the spring on there soo much. Then reverse the dis assembly process to put it all back together. Of course re-apply some good waterproof grease on everything for good measure.

You can also go to www.50stunt.com to watch their installation video which covers installing new springs, bushings and fork legs. Springs are pretty easy though.

beware, sometimes its a to screw the new springs back onto the retainers, it will appear that you are scraping the end of the spring into the metal, thats fine. It will take some muscle to get the spring seated all the way flush against the retainer, and a decent size crescent wrench can make it easier, but you can do it with just your hands

hmmm.. It was pretty easy for me? I may have just been one of the lucky ones though.
