while changing the oil and seals these is also going in there:
http://www.hordpower.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=341
J.D at hordpower also sold me his Penske Shock


And just because I bought these and also a 1-piece Spidi suit, your rims are not coming my way..
Well and also because Im having my first born baby girl in a few weeks!

I really like your exhaust it looks like it sets back further then the one Hord typically installs. Did you ask for that or did he change his setup?

Oh no, That is Hordpower's bike. I just used his pic to show the shock.
In a couple of month I may be picking up this set up do.
Or maybe I will go with a zard full system!

OK, my forks are overdue, I've been putting it off, and this excellent thread has inspired me to do it myself. That Privateers Garage is a great idea but since I live in Ohio and California has all the good stuff, I'll to have to get the tools together on my own.

I'm going to go ahead and order a fork spring compressor tool, but I thought about trying to make some of the other tools to save a few $$$'s. The cartridge holding tool looks like something that could be made fairly easily from a piece of PVC pipe? If so, could someone who has one or has used one take a few measurements and post them up? Same thing with the damper rod tool, I think all I'd need is the correct thread size.

...Or if this is a dumb idea, someone set me straight please

The fork compressor is about $120, so not too expensive. Any bike shop that has a Parts Unlimited account can order one for you, including STG.

The cartridge holder's teeth need to withstand 24 nm. That's not a whole lot, but I'm not sure PVC is strong enough. What you could do is get a castle nut socket that's the right size and get a long extension to drop it down. I can try to get you some measurements today.

The damper rod you could probably make yourself. It doesn't need to be super strong, but there does need to be a small hole where the threaded part meets the long rod, so you can see when oil starts coming out the top when all the air is out.
