    I thought about that but actually did not know if it was possible. I can't see how to take it off. If you could could you walk me through it.

    Replacement fork help needed

    Hey guy's I need help I bought a fork from ebay at a steal of a price to replace my bad forks. The one I bought was listed to fit 08 but you can see by the pictures that the caliper mount spacing it different. I need to find a caliper now that will mount to my new forks. And idea what fork I have and what caliper I need to look for to mount up. The one with the small spacing is the old one the wider one is the new one. Thanks.

    Update: Oil Temperature gauges...with pictures.

    Sorry I thin I got all of you confused by my post. All I was saying it caught me off guard the way Max said it. I would have just said they don't normally run hot or something like that. With Max phrasing it as "thermally vary healthy" just show my limited vocabulary. I will crawl back under my rock now and shut up.

    mx rob I might be mistaken but I thought I read a post of yours in the last few weeks that you said you rode a DR that had a Mikuni TM 39 I think that was it but not sure. But anyway you said it was one of the best carburetors DR's you ever rode. If I am recalling it right why the FCR instead of the TM.

    Max Kool I am not knocking you at all I read almost every post of yours with great respect. But " thermally very healthy " don't tell me we now have to be politically correct even while talking about bikes.

    please help I must be a caveman

    ttsquirel Its not brain surgery it only setting the valves. With all the information here and all the willingness of fellow inmates it will not be all that hard to do. Just make sure you have the right tools before you get started and you can down load a service manual if you have not done that yet. Then take your time don't rush it and after you think you have it right roll the motor a few time and recheck just to put your mind at easy. Use this as a stepping stone to do more and more of your one work. Knowing you did it and did it right makes you feel so much better than hopping some underpaid over worked so called tech may have done it right.

    You will be measuring between the adjuster screw and the valve stem. # 8 - 16 and 11 - 17 if you cant get the feeler gages in make sure you are on top dead center.

    From low to high

    That would be the level of the oil in the fork tube. Meaning that he filled it stopping 5" from the top.
