thanks for the reply, really impressed with the amount of great info on the forums
unfortunately i don't have any access to a welder -might have a spanner made of cheap enough metal to bend in a vice. - would a rubberised strap spanner/grip thingy used for car oil filters grip it? is there enough room to use one? hopefully ill be able to cobble something together to hold it enough.

thats what am planning on ordering so far
even though so of the items are a little more expensive than other places the combined shipping makes its the cheapest iv found in total (there skid plate is far to much though) i know that the crash guards are supposed to be worse than the HT ones (from reading the forum) but am skint with almost no off road experience - iv done just enough to want to do a lot more, already trashed the side of one bike from it
the sporty road tyres might have played a part in that though .............
edit: the bike has just had fresh oil in it and it seems a shame to have to change it after less than 200miles, so could i lay the bike on its none doohickey side (right?) and keep the oil in - would that work?? -id put the crash bars on that side first and put something like old carpet on the floor to protect it.
also is it possible to change the fork springs with out taking the forks off? prop front wheel in the air on bit of wood loosen the thingys and slide the forks up a bit (to get the pressure of the clamps off form near the threads of the top cap) then tighten the lower thingy to hold them while wrenching the spacer is on top of the spring isn't it?? so i don't need to tip it upside down to get it out?? then does the tighter wound end of the progressive springs go up or down? would my plan work ??
and yes am so skint i don't want to have to buy oil or fork oil if i can avoid it
