There is a allen bolt on the end of the fork tube that will have to be removed. Do this now.

Next is the removal of the dust cover. This can be accomplish by placing a flat tip screw driver under the lip and prying it loose. It will come off easy.

Stand the fork on the end and you'll see a inner locking spring that holds the seal in place. Take a small screw driver and grab it in the open slot and pry toward the fork and it will pop loose.

After you remove the inner spring you can take the top nut off the top of the fork. The spring won't have alot of tention on it so don't worrie about it all flying out. You'll turn it upside down to finish drainning the fork oil out in a bucket. With a few slides back and forth of the fork tube the seal will come off along with the bushing. Watch how it comes loose to reverse the way it goes back in. You'll have a bushing, a washer then a seal, theclip and last the dust cover. The inside you'll have the inner forkloading rod assemble, fork spring then the spring washer and last the cap nut.

The last part is to put the allen bolt back in the bottom.

On the right fork you go throught the same preceedure as on the left side. The only different is you'll have to perload the piston that is on the right side before you place the top cap on. The way I did this is to pour some fork oil into the sleeve of the fork tube with the main spring out. Pull the small rod out and you'll hear the piston filling as you're pulling up. Push it back down and do the same thing again untill you clear all the air out and you have a good strong pull with no air. Turn the fork upside down a remove any extra oil in a bottle. It won't drain what is inside the valve that you filled. Measure the 16.5 oz of fork oil in a measuring cup and pour into the top of the tube.Then place the fork spring in and the washer and last the cap.

After installing the left tube in the triple tree you can attach the anti dive assemble back on and them remove the top cap and pour 17.5 oz of fork oil into the tube. You'll see some bubbles as the dive valve is refilling with oil. This is why the left side takes one more once of oil than the right side.
