Front Forks Project

Well... I am not going to bore you with a years worth of excuses as to why its taken me this long to get around to installing the new goodies, but I have set aside this weekend to get this completed. I have the factory manual and Fred's DVD set. I have watched all the related videos twice each.

The project includes:
- RaceTech 1.1 Springs
- RaceTech Gold Valve / Emulator Kit
- Fresh bushings, seals, and fork oil
- All Balls taper steering stem bearings
- Lower Tree from 2012 up Goldwing
- 5pc. Fork Brace ( I already have this installed by previous owner )
- Anti dive disabled

I have the Honda bushing and seals kit from WingStuff that includes new bolts and crush washers, and new O-rings for the fork caps in addition to the bushings, seals and dust covers. I also have a Traxxion Front Forks service tool kit. This has lots of goodies in it including the long 6mm allen needed for the bolt at the bottom of the forks. Got lots of fork oil, etc. Should be good here.

My questions are going to be in 2 follow on posts so you all can reply to each as appropriate.
