Thanks to everyone for the threads on changing the fork oil seals. Couldn't have done it without them. Since I bought the bike without any known history of it, I have changed the front/rear wheel bearings, the front fork oil seals and dust covers, having my tires and tubes swapped with TW34 and SR241 and now I am tackling the steering stem. Not sure if it needed them done but at least I know the last time they were done. I have a pic of the upper race installed but I can't seem to get it seated all the way. Might be 1mm or so gap but still won't go and don't want to pound it and ruin it. Is it okay like that? Also, I don't have a driver or a socket big enough for the lower race and haven't really found any tips on how to do it without the right tool. Any suggestions or just go splurge on a kit?
