Timing chains seems to be the weakest link in the valve train, and should be checked at least every season, and replaced sooner, rather then later.

Just curious, but what bad things happened?
You can destroy the complete engine with jumped timing. And I mean complete. As in engine cases and all.

Fork seals are not that hard to do, but can be a bit intimidating the first time. At least it was for me. After doing it once, it is easy and thank myself for learning to do it instead of taking it to dealers and spending an unnecessary amount of $$$
Yeah it sucked tearing it down, but I learned a lot. It was also time to change fluids, so not a complete waste of time. Next project is to replace fork seals. Looks like that can be interesting. I've done fork seals on my 81 CB650, but those were simple forks. These WR forks look pretty sophisticated.
