Sorry for thread jacking it a little, but can someone tell me what all I need to order for my forks? They have a slight leak also and I want to make sure I order everything I need. Do I just need the fork seals and dust seals?
You need air tools for getting the cartridge assembly out of the bottom fork tube, and you need some sort of spring compressor / holder for dealing with the spring and the top piece of the cartridge. This is for disassembling the fork the way the shop manual says you are supposed to and for reliably setting the fork oil level and bleeding air out of the forks. I don't know of any short-cuts that will work reliably.
