Red face Need Info removing forks!!!!

Basic question and perhaps a dum one as well,... but I whant to make sure I don't miss anything and why not benefit of all of Your wisdom!!!

I need to replace the fork boots...yeap just the boots.

1) Lift front end
2) remove brake caliper
3) remove wheel
4) disconect cables
5) loose the triple clamp....and fork should slide out.

Did I miss anything??? also can someone tell me the torque for the prescribed items (wheel, caliper. triple)

thanks a lot

I think you about covered it.

The only torque you really need to worry about is the triples. Something like 12 foot pounds, be careful with them. Use an inch pound torque wrench and convert the 12ft lb over using google.

I think it'll be 144 inch pounds. Just a hunch..

To convert foot pounds to inch pounds, multiply by 12.
To convert inch pounds to foot pounds, divide by 12.
