I just did the progressive fork replacement on my vn750.. made it a brand new bike! Thanks to everyone who has posted on this topic. I was able to prepare for the job and complete it within 2 hours (1.5 for the first side, 30 min for the other side). Just a couple of notes I would like to add:
- do not remove the forks (don't know why some people say to, including the Kawaski/Honda shop in Manassas!)
- I used 20W fork oil, works great on all roads.
- I used the PVC pipe for spacers, cut it to make the entire length of spring and spacer 1/4 inch longer than org, perfect preload!
- replaced front tire w/ a dunlap.. gave it a totally new ride, very trustable! Dosen't grab lines in the road anymore!
