How To: Fork Seals on 03-04 B1/B2

I couldnt find a specific how-to or video online that showed how to do specifically the 03-04 636. I found some for newer zx6r's and other bikes, but when I did my forks they were a little different than other forks Ive seen. So i decided to make a video.

I also wanted to show how easy it is for anyone that is scared to do it themselves. It really is a pretty simple process. You need a few specialty tools like a spring compressor, but I also wanted to show how anyone can just make their own with very simple materials.

Hope it helps.

05-06 forks I believe are differenet right? So there is still a place for it. Go make one. Closest Ive found were for the 07-08 style Which are definitely different than my 04.

That's the idea. Hope it helps more than a few people. Everyone I talked to locally was scared to death to do fork seals themselves and told me not to even try. Well for the $300 the dealer wants to do them I figured I'd give it a shot. Ive put about 700 miles on since I did them and no leaks yet.
