Fork tubes removal......

For those of you who have removed your own fork tubes, what all needs to come off to remove the forx? Does the front nose fairing need to be removed?

It's been a little while, but no need to remove the front fairings. Put the front end up on a head lifter stand, or suspend it via the headstock.

Take the front calipers, tyre and mudguard off. Loosen the clip ons and upper and lower pinch bolts on the triple clamps. Forks will just slide out. Pretty simple really. Make sure when you put them back together that you get the cabling right (the throttle cables).

Indeed, I typed the wrong thing, but was thinking of clip ons. Doh!

I was actually able to get a combination wrench in there and get mine, there is just barely enough room, but be carefull one slip and the bolts are rounded.

You can still turn the bars while the front end is up to get clearance. Use a socket or a ring spanner, should be able to get in there no drama.
