Advice for new fork seals
So it seems that I bought my F4i right as all the standard wear items are going, R/R went out, battery went out, and now I've got a leaky fork seal. She's running again now but I need to sort this out before I get her out on the road again.
I've decided I can do this myself since I was able to complete a valve adjustment (after a few mistakes) this should be cake compared to that. My problem is I don't have a front headlift stand, and I'm a cheap bastard. I found one on ebay for $66 but I figured some of you other dudes might have some creative ways to get the front off the ground to pull the forks...
I plan on going with OEM seals, and I'm going to wait on new Racetech springs because I need cash for Christmas and all that.
Any crafty ideas much appreciated. I already came across a youtube video where the guy made his own fork seal driver with pvc pipe and it seemed to work perfectly, but the Motion Pro driver is like $35 so I dunno.
