    Sure, make it on a friday.

    So we tore Dave's bike apart...





    Replaced the bushings... which weren't that bad for 10,000 miles on a 12" over front end.


    Also did new seals and fresh oil. The good Belray 20W oil and it's fancy jug


    Lance stupervising


    All rebuilt and ready..


    This was right after we removed the neck bearings for inspection, cleaned and repacked the grease.


    Coming back together


    Also removed his exhaust to replace the clutch adjustment cover, and adjusted the clutch



    Test rode and no more front end clicking... Dave was very happy

    Hell yeah! Thanks again for all your help and hospitality we also replaced my handlebar bushings...had a great time at Sean's suburb bonfire!!

    yep...had a clicking in my front end...after week did the fork seals..bushings and oil...no more clicky!
    when I got back home...I noticed I lost my chrome ring that goes around my headlight....thankful that I had a new spare! I tightened my headlamp back up...cleaned threads...put a little anti-seize on the threads...put on new chrome ring...and loc-tited my set screw, so it shouldn't come loose again...I think my set screw wasn't all the way on the ring...good to go now!
