can this be done in the average garage? I have pretty good mechanical abilities as i work/fly on helicopters. What special tools are needed and if i took them someplace what should i expect to get them back in working order with my new springs. The forks were just worked with the racetech valves and springs with new seals and oil. I just picked up the bike and its way to undersprung for me.

To just change the springs, you need:
1. A 32mm or 1-1/4" socket to loosen/tighten the fork bolt (fork cap).
2. A fork spring compressor tool (with the simple one, an extra pair of hands).
3. A holder clip to hold the spring in place while you loosen/tighten the adjust case and jam nut.
4. A 12mm and 19mm tappet wrench (<5mm thick) to loosen/tighten the upper lock nut against the adjust case.
5. Instructions to refer to. For SP2's, refer to the '04 CBR1000RR section on fork disassembly for the fork bolt and reload adjuster.
