I had the  front and rear of mine while they got rebuilt.. I put it on the center stand and used jack stands under the engine bars

Crosshairs, I am actually going to copy that once I get the bolts out of the fork yolks. I have the stands and a trolley jack and an extra set of stands that I can stick in somewhere if needed.

Your pictures inspire confidence.

Got it!

Took some muscle, some helpful advice from here and skinned knuckles but I got them off eventually.

Now to clean them and ship them the 40 miles I am not allowed to drive.

Well done. What work are you doing to them?

Well done. What work are you doing to them?

Sending them to a local suspension specialist who will put my Racetech springs in and if needed he'll play with the oil I guess.

He'll also be servicing my Wilbers 640 shock.

Figure being as the race meetings he usually supports are all called off I would give him my business. He only lives 40 miles from me but given we aren't aloud out I'll just send them by parcel carrier.
