Makin progress! Figured since I got the headgasket done and its running again, I would start on the forks. Tools needed: Sockets 10mm 12mm 14mm Crescent wrench 6mm Allen wrench Snap ring pliers Stout flat bladed screwdriver Flashlight Step 1 Jack the bike up so the front end is off the ground. I ended up tying the back end down and jacking under the skid plate. Kinda precarious, but it hasnt fallen over. Yet... Step 2 Once the front end is off the ground, crack the two large nuts on the very top of the fork loose with the crescent wrench. You can remove the 10mm bolt from the side of the fork to drain some of the oil. This will still leave a fair bit of oil in the bottom of the fork, which you will be draining anyways. Now remove the 4 14mm nuts and the cap on the bottom of each fork leg. Once the nuts are off, the front tire should fall free. Notice the allen bolt in the bottom of the tube that is now exposed. Sometimes it is easier to crack this loose with the fork still attached to the bike, but it wasnt working to great for me. Step 3 Pull the forks off! Loosen the 6 12mm bolts on the fork clamps (2 at the bottom, 1 at the top, on each side). Note to self- clean the tubes off before trying to slide the shock out... The top clamp was tight, so I tapped a small flat bladed screw driver in to widen the gap. If you do this be VERY CAREFUL not to overdo it as you can crack the clamp. Both tubes slid out easily. Looks a little funny... Step 4 Fork dissassembly! First order of buisness- remove the 6mm allen bolt from the bottom of the shock. This can be tricky- I think the damper(?) its attached to spins. After twisting the bolt for an eon I finally just hit it with the butterfly and it came right out. Stand the fork up in an oil catcher. Oil should drain out of the hole. Carefully remove the large nut on the top while holding the shock up to keep pressure off the spring. Once the nut is off, let the slide collapse into the leg a bit until you can get the top spring, washer, and bottom spring out. Pump the shock a few times to get the oil out of the damper. The slide should now just pull right out of the bottom fork tube. Tip the slide upside down to get the damper out of the slide. Time to remove the seal! Pop the dust seal off (should be able to twist it off with your hand). Use the snap ring pliers to take out the snap ring. Stout screwdriver time! Carefully pry the seal out without scratching anything! I used a large tire iron and it worked great. Lay all the parts out and start cleaning! Thats as far as I got tonight, but one note on cleaning the bottom fork tube: There is a pocket at the bottom that doesnt drain out of the bottom hole, it drains out of the 10mm side bolt hole. Shine a flashlight down there to make sure you got the 30 year old crud out!
