    I used my AbbaStand with front lift arm to drop my fork legs before i took them to Maxton.

    It raises the whole bike off the floor. I removed callipers first - zip-tied them to the radiator sides out of the way, then remove the mudguard - watch for the metal inserts falling out and finding their way into the nearest hole(!) then pull the axle and drop the front wheel - you'll need a big 14mm allen key socket for this.

    It took me about half an hour, and that's being careful, making sure the bits were stored in order and everything wrapped up for protection.

    My MT came (from the previous owner) with YSS shock and springs and have to say that I'm happy out with them, it's the Z-Series and they work just great. Easily adjustable and I think that they have a pretty good value

    - YSS Shock Absorbers

    Available from wemoto apparently.

    Little update again!

    I decided to go with the Ktech IDS20 fork cartridges and Ktech springs.

    Ordered the cartridges from Omniaracing in Italy, Ktech won't sell them to you directly annoyingly, but I want to install them myself instead of paying 180 to JHS! I think I can do it fairly easily, I don't plan to change fork seals (which is what makes up part of the cost with JHS etc), I'll make a tool to hold the stock cartridges if necessary.

    Just waiting for things to arrive now.

    I plan to use 8.5N/mm springs. I haven't chosen my oil yet, but I want to use 16 to 17cst oil in the rebound leg, and perhaps a lighter ~10cst in the compression leg.

    I just need to find something in the UK which has these viscosity levels
