I need new rubber shock covers for the front forks. Would it be a big job to put new ones on?? Can I just take the front tire off and slide em on that way or do I have to disassemble the whole fork assembly??:animal0034:

This is a good replacement, seems to hold up well. You will need to drop the forks to install new fork boots. Not a real hard job. If you do not have a motorcycle jack, there are some "make do" methods to support the bike while you drop the forks. If the fork boots are shot, and you need to replace them, it may be a good time to change the fluid in the forks.

How?

I do have a bike jack. Now how do I go about dropping the forks? What all do I have to do to drop a fork? Do I have to tear appart the headlight assembly or dismantle the handle bars? I also have no clue how to change the fluid in the forks. I appreciate the help thanks!!

No, you don't need to mess with the fairing. Here is a two part video that does a good job of describing the process. The parts important to you will be the removal and re-installation of the forks.



Here's a blow by blow walk through.
