I have my lower legs off the bike. Im gonna install my lowering kit in them and had a question about the fork oil. Can I just turn the leg upside down and drain out the old fluid? the simply refill it with the amount removed?

I just took the bolt out of the bottom of the fork and then gently push up on the fork and it will push the oil right out u might have to do this 2 times


Ride it like you stole it!

Okay so installed all the new springs and when I got to the long spring it stuck out past the upper portion of the leg. About 1/2 an inch. So I couldn't use the spacer. Anyone encounter this. It's the same on both legs.

That's ok, that's your preload. You may need to cut the spacer down to adjust your preload. You'll need to compress it by hand to get the cap back on. Could be a pain in the ass.


Tap it!
