I FINALLY got my forks off the SheePz... after about 2 years of
procrastinating. The fork seals finally went and were dripping goo all
over. Not that big a deal... the hardest part was loosening the allen
bolts on the lower triple clamp. Not much room in there with the
fairing on.

So I took the fork caps off and poured out the horrible-looking oil,
and prepared my 27mm impact socket and extensions to disassemble the
damper assembly. Crap... the impact socket is too thick to fit down
the fork tube. Drive 20 minutes to napa. All they have is impact
sockets. "Don't you have any crappier tools?" I ask the guy. He
doesn't think so but he'll look... finally get a 1 1/16 house brand
socket that's thinner walled than my impact socket. Go home and try
it. Still too thick. What the heck do you guys use? Paging Art....
