I am completely lost on how to drain the oil out of my forks. I have an 06 yz450 and I just need to know the proper procedure on getting the outer chamber oil out and replacing it. I've searched and searched but I can't find anything other than the instructions for the 05 and prior. Thanks

pull the top cap (not the one inside, but the one that is threaded into the fork itself). You should be able to unscrew the cartrige from the outer fork tube then slide it down and flip it to drain.
