Hello All, I decided to rebuild the forks while I wait for my 2nd set of tires to show up. (As noted in other post not happy with Bridgestone T31 Battlax that wouldn't fit, so going back to the Michelin 5's). Anyways, I figure I take a picture of the forks mostly broken down for others who may have not endeavored in this area of maintenance before. Will inspect / reassemble tomorrow or Wednesday. Also included is a picture of what fork oil looks like after 24,905 miles of maybe 65% highway, 35% rural roads. Pretty dark / filthy looking. Breakdown was pretty straightforward. If you have the shop manual - this helps guide you through the process - otherwise it is straightforward. I have also happy to say Honda provided adequate clearance to disassemble the forks w/o having to remove the full fairing. I have checked yet if my torque wrench has clearance though for reassembly....
