I don't like the Welsh but that's all about getting beaten at school for pinching their water as they see it.

Yeah well it is funny how the English (and I am half English) have relied on the men from Scotland and Wales to be the best fighting men in the British army to fight the wars that the generally English politicians keep starting! And anyway, if it wasn't for the Celts, who could England beat at football? Funny how so many English want to ride/holiday/live in Wales too.....
I am also reminded of the sign in the public
lavatories (Builth Wells I think) that states 'Please flush vigorously, the English need our water'

i have now ordered new dampers, progressive springs and seals for the forks. I don't possess a tool for compressing the springs - is there a nifty way of doing this without a special tool, but if not, what would be a suitable tool to buy?
Also, I note Gutsibits say only one seal per fork is needed as oppose to the two originally fitted, owing to the higher quality of the new seals - am I right in assuming i should be able to fit the new seals without any special tool?

Thanks for any advice.

new seals you need only one ....I use a socket to pop it in there the V1000 has sealed dampers so the ATF oil is merely belt and braces lube, my fork internals are good after 267,000 miles and 41 yrs!
