Yeah, the first one I tried to install dry without even thinking about it (hey, it was like 2am).Hey Brett,
Sweet job and Great Details on "How to Do" a Fork Rebuild, very Nice Bro.!
Also, FWIW: I've got a Great tip to aid the "Bushing Install" which ofcourse will help make this go Much smoother & easier to do... as you said "it can be a pain to install"
That is to put the Bushings into your freezer for a min. of around 15 to 20 min., Longer is good, upon taking them out of the freezer, then QUICKLY Spread a fine coat of fork oil around the OD of the Bushing and the ID of the fork tube, then QUICKLY Install said Bushing.
Again, Great Write Up Brett!
I thought I was going to wake up the neighbors with all the banging I was doing. After lubing it up, it went right in.
