Pictorial for changing fork seals and bushings kx500

Post by Sandblaster » Tue Jan 21, 2014 11:40 pm

Pictorial for changing fork seals and bushings in a kx500.

First thing I do is clean the forks....
Next, I measure how far the fork caps are sticking out from the triple clamps.
Then I count how many clicks to bottom out for the dampening and rebound adjustment screws.
From there I do it as follows..
Keep in mind this is not a complete description of everything I do but the pics for the most part line it out pretty well..
