Will I need a fork puller to install the forks back on the bike? I remember watching my uncle use one back in the late 60's on a YDS5. Thanks.

Used the front axel with a screwdriver through the hole to set the forks. Pretty simple.

Sorry, this is going back a bit & had to see what i wrote. All i was saying was with the circlip just be careful, & i've never bothered to take any extra precautions when fitting them--just be careful doing it as not to scratch the fork tubes--that's all. Anyway, looks like you're way past there & gong well.

I cut the side out of a plastic milk jug and wrapped it around the fork. I filed the end of the clip to be sure there was no sharp edges to cut the plastic. I then worked the circlip over the plastic and them slid ot down the tube. That was pretty much the same way I got them off. Wasn't to hard but they can be tuff little buggers to deal with. Thanks!

Got the new tires and.laced up wheels on. Trying to work thru a case issue that resulted in a kick start problem with the help of a member. For a bike with less then 3k on the dial it had the most cobbled together bunch of hardware on it.
