When I replaced the fork oil in my 1100, I left them on my bike. I jacked it up with a piece of plywood on the jack to avoid messing up any of the aluminum casing. Then I put a block under it, Pumped the shocks up and down to get all the old fluid out, and put the seals on, then filled it withthe recommended amount off ATM fluid. Simpple, after the first one.
The seal kit comes with the seal,, the dust cap, and the bottom O-Ring. Make sure you do not damage your 2 Metal O-Rings or circlip. Also, when you put in your ATM fluid, be careful when removing the Fork Caps, because the springs inside will send the cap flying. It has a lot of momentum even after the air is drained, so be careful. I nearly had a black eye becauseof this, LOL
