20k on front forks time for something

I have the parts and eral from brad to change everything butt hesitate about pulling out the cartridges

should I dump the oil and see if it looks sludgy? is there a cleaner that could be put it to shake around w/o pulling the carts?

I ask cause I dont have any leaks etc.. and hate to tempt fate !!

at 20k miles, you NEED to pull them.

if you remove the bolt in the bottom of the forks, then remove the cap, the entire cart kit will come out in one piece. take cleaner and spray down the internal portion of the tubes as well as clean the valving,etc. on the cart kit. let the cleaner evaporate and reassemble.

If you have the right tools pulling the cartridge out is super easy. If you want to get all of the oil out of the cartrage youll have to yank the spring off.

Heres a 'tool' i made to compress the spring to get it off of the cartridge. Its just a 2x4, a couple eye hooks, a strap and a couple sliding door locks.

If you've got the seal and the bike is apart already, might as well use it. I would

I cleaned everything really well but had some oil run out of the carts overnight, I didnt take the springs off just compressed them and pulled the cap off and rod out.

none of it looked very dirty so ? is how much will this contaminate the new oil.

also why i didnt despring, how do you compress the spring to put it back together if taken apart like the 2004 pdf shows??

I posted a picture of my home made spring compressor earlier in your thread. You have to get the spring down low enough to get to the bolt thats under the top hat of the cartridge. Its not easy, has to compress a few inches.

There is usually a good amount of fluid in the cartrage you have to pump out of it, Im unsure if it will drain on its own after a day or so. I'd say about a half a cup would still be in the cartridge.
