Vegas 2006 Fork seal replacement

827 2
Had to replace seals in a Vegas 06 - manual was incorrect in many areas including oil - spacers - and procedure...pulling the forks off was fine...however it required a "rattle gun: to get the top cap off...and there were no less than three parts that sprang forth when the cap let go. "None" of these these parts was shown in the manual - and worse still they had to be compressed into the tube under a load equal to my 65kg frame and held in alignment. See pictures...To DRIVE THE SEAL IN I went to the plumbing store and got a 50mm pressure connector - ground some off the outside and it worked perfectly $2.00. All in all if it wasnt for the stupid "three spacers" in the top of the tube this repair would have been a snack !
