Fork Oil Change
I just finished my fork oil change, I followed the instruction in the service manual step by step.
I put some Motul 15W because it was all they had in the store but I wanted to go to an heavier grade anyways.
I build a few tools (I might post pictures later) to replace the fork spring compressor, the piston rod puller and the fork spring stopper
HOWEVER One really annoying guy in another forum told me that I did not need any tools
He told me that all that was needed was to remove the bottom bolt and then remove the Top plug and the tube would separate allowing to change both the seals and the oil...
I still can't figure out if there is anything wrong with that procedure and I don't know if I have to show him off or thank him (remember he is annoying)
