Just a question on how to remove the forks from a 97' DR350SE. The reason is because I purchased new fork boots and will be replacing the old yellow ones with new black day star boots.

The forks are stock on my bike, I'm assuming I have to put the boots on from the top of the forks once they are off.

Thanks in advance!
the fork legs are held on by the clamps on top, thing the handle bars attach to. Undo the 4 pinch bolts on each side. Two on the top clamp two on the bottom. It would be best to remove the front wheel, and remove each leg seperatly. Once at this point jsut pull each leg down. Might have to pry open the clamps with a screw driver. Might need to remove the brake caliper on one side and the speedo cable guide on the other.

Make sure you note how far up on the fork legs it was clampped. Mark with sharpie, so that you know where to reinstall them.
