    Default 6" Over 39mm Tube replacement instructions....MIA

    Just got my 6' overs and they didnt come with instructions. Ive watched every vid on you tube and read all i could find but nothing told me exactly how to do it on my 95 sporty. Where does the spacer go?? on top of spring or does it go in before the spring?? Stock fork fluid capacity is 10 ounces.... does that change or stay the same amount?? Any insight would be greatly appreciated...........

    Not too sure on capacity of the fork tubes (maybe someone can chime in), but when you break apart your fork tubes, you'll put it all back together like you would stock forks, throw the stock springs in and THEN the spacer goes atop the springs. The spacer maintains your preload, so you're gonna wanna cut the spacer so that when your cap goes back on, it is under tension. Pretty simple install.

    Correct. Mine drained way too slow from the drain holes so I just poured the oil from the top of the tubes.
