I did mine about a month ago. The instructions could be a lot better. I found them to be a bit confusing. The only real pain was getting to the midvalve and the instruction tape did not deal with that at all. After doing the first one, the second was much easier. I did have a lot of doubts midway through the job and wondered why I had attempted it. In the end the suspension is better but I wonder if I could have just modified the stock shim stack. I do not want to discourage you. I just want you to know it was a much more involved job than I originally thought. If you have any questions just ask. Good Luck!!

I think it is best to leave it to a suspension expert for the money. I agree with Blitzer544 you have to have resolve to get it done and be patient. I would rather tear apart the engine then mess with fork valving. I fear I would screw it up and be disappointed with the performance.
