Wrenching party in NoVa?
So I see these on the Jeepers forum all the time, but hadn't seen any in here, and I just might be needing a hand with the Mistress....
So I picked up the Duc today in DC, and I'm really digging it. The ride home was as fun as doing 85 down the HOV can be, even though the road work tried to kill me (I was mid-lane change when they went to the split level roads, I missed the bump by a foot or so). Anyways, after getting her home and titled/registered/blah blah blah, I notice one of the fork seals is leaking. I'm not one to panic, but I already have a valve check coming up on it that I knew about, and while inspecting the bike the owner told me about a bearing that should be replaced in the triple tree.
So I know the fork seals can be replaced relatively easily (and cheaply!), but has anyone replaced the bearings in the tree? How hard is it? Anyone willing to come over to Stafford and assist (There will be beers and brats at the very least) with any changes?
I've also been reading up on the valve check, and it doesn't *look* hard, but having never done it, I could always use some advice. So would it be better to take it in to have a dealer do it, along with all the other maintenance that should be done around then, or is this something a reasonably determined person can do?
