Hi There,

Bike is '97, and there is just a bit of oil, left fork leg, that seems to be getting by the seal. So, I wouldn't mind changing out the pr. Here are my questions:
1. Tube diameter? 43mm? I don't have calipers and was planning on getting my non-Duc local shop to get me seals from Parts Unlimited or Tucker. The 97 Monster isn't listed in their catalogs though. Race-Tech says 41mm? Showas btw, not Marzoc.
2. I have the factory manual and it doesn't appear to be a job that requires any special tools. To get the damper rod out, you use a m4 threaded rod to get a grip and pull it out? (Sorry if I sound like a nob.) Other than that, the job of replacing seals seems pretty straight forward. Please correct me if I'm wrong! Any last minute advice? Furthermore, the seals don't really 'need' replacing, they will eventually, but I'm bored.
Any advice?

Yup, got the Showas. Thanks for the comments. I think I'll give it a go myself. Springs I think I'll leave. I weigh 155, my wife weighs 115 and it is her bike technically and she'll ride it more often than I. The bike does squat probably more than 2.5cm, but that's okay sag number I guess.
