    Hi All
    Anybody done a set of Fork Sesls ?
    I've done Loads in my Time but Not a BMW.
    Does the Electronic Gizmo on the L/H Fork Leg just Unbolt ?
    Not used my Bike for a while but they've def gone and I ain't Paying what BMW Quoted me.

    All The Best.
    Brian

    I have done them, not really any different than doing them on a bike with standard suspension. You need a spring compressor for one leg but not the other.

    The Hanyes manual is actually not bad for detailing the fork servicing and oil levels etc.
