Gorbachev: The ceiling of the.. what? Gradge?

david haney: if you undo the pinch bolt on the top yoke , the top cap will undo a lot easier !!

Deerock: You should pump the forks to remove as much oil as possible. Also, you could always measure the amount of old oil removed and add the same amount of new oil (provided you know that it was previously filled properly)... eh?

Luke O'Neill: Nice work.. 1 bolt undone in 4 minutes.. World record

thesuperdeeshow: You will need a fork spring compressor tool to do the job right. They have them on Ebay here http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Motorcycle-Fork-Spring-Compressor-and-Damper-Rod-Holding-Tool-Kit-mfsc-/251680797288?pt=Motors_Automotive_Tools&hash=item3a99583268&vxp=mtr

Derek Wood: I may have missed something, but one thing that should be done, is to 'pump' the fork legs up and down a few times to expel all the oil.  Nice video and very helpful otherwise.  Regards.  D.

Callum Bateman: Cheers, very helpful. Where are you from/live? Can i hear some Scottish in your accent?

spacep0d: Wouldn't a front stand prevent the spring from wanting to shoot the fork cap into the ceiling?

Ladler of Lollipops: One of the reasons that top cap was so difficult to remove was because the upper pinch bolt is pinching the threads. Loosening those up may help with that problem, as I remember the top caps shouldn't be so snug to require a breaker bar. Also, a bathing towel is on my tank whenever I do work.

Carlos Lima: BETTER WITH A PISE OF PIPE
