This winter going to get rid of the annoying weepy stock fork seals. Briefly looked over the manual. Guess my question is how does the difficulty factor of fork rebuild on the 06's compare to that of say the 426's?? Did my 01' 426 myself with no problems, so give me courage by telling me I should be OK on the 06!?!?! Please?!?!

Input appreciated,'

It is easy if you have the tools to loosen the fork caps. I made myself one. Other than that it is really easy.
