Fork service about to commence...

Ok, so after an EXTREMELY long saturday at a buddy's shop trying to diagnose my front end problem, the conclusion was reached that it is time for me to service my forks. I purchased the bike (2002 model) with 6500 miles on it, it currently has 11,000 miles on it and I can't say with any certainty that the previous owner did any type of service on the forks (or anything else for that matter).

So, with that being said, I will perform the fork service myself and have a few questions...

1. What does everyone use to keep front end up??? I only have a front fork m/c stand and obviously that wont do.

Now, onto the list of parts/tools/fluids...please add to the list if I have left something out...

OIL SEALS (2) *approx $13.42 each*
-part # is 51153-02FA0

DUST SEALS (2) *approx $14.29 each*
-part # is 51173-02FA0

FORK OIL WASHER (2) *approx $2.67 each*
-part # is 51158-14200

Fork Oil -- 10W -- Suzuki dealer??


Tools of the trade...
Fork spring compressor kit from Traxxion Dynamics
-CLICKY LINK FOR KIT


So if anyone has anything to add, please please POST UP!!! I will be taking advantage of my service manual and the write-up CAT3 did (even though the pics dont look like they will be available)

Thanks!
Chemist.

I just took the front forks off my wifes busa...I put the bike on the rear stand.....then I used a floor jack with a towl on it...placed it under the headers and jacked it up....with the bike being on the rear stand it doesn't wobble at all....worked awesome for me.!!!
