I am working on my 2003 VTX1800c. It has the front wheel off for new tire. Since, as the picture shows, the forks are easily accessed why not install new springs and oil. Well there are not any good youtube videos in regard to this for the VTX1800 that are worth following. Can't find much in the forums either that I can understand. Partszilla has an excellent video for this project on a 2007 Honda Goldwing GC1800. Does anyone here at the Forum know if these two bikes' forks are a close match procedure wise. Of course there are different sizes of springs,etc. but would the method of doing it be the same? The video is so good I could even get this done on my own. Wouldn't it be the same way on either one? The maintenance book would be used for specs and ounces and such. Also if I dive into this should I install new bushings even though they are not leaking? Bike has shy of 12k miles. Your thoughts are appreciated. Fingers crossed.
