I have a 1996 XR400, and am in the process of replacing the fork seals. This is my first time doing this job. I have the Clymer's manuel, and I'm to the point where I have the springs and oil out. The next step is to remove the compression bolt. The book says while the forks are still on the bike to compress the forks to loosen the compression bolts. I did this prior to disassembly, but wasn't sure how far to back them off. Now when I try to remove them, the internals (where the piston rod goes into) just spin. I tried puting them back together without oil and loosening them, but that didn't work either. I thought maybe someone put newer forks on the bike, but I don't think its very likely that they would put stockers back on. Any help would be much appreciated.
