Showa Fork General Description (DVD: FCRF450R03D):

This DVD applies to the following motorcycles:
02 – 07 Honda CR CRF 450 CRF450R
04 – 07 Honda CR CRF 250 CRF250R
04 – 07 Honda CR CRF 250 CRF250X
97 – 07 Honda CR 250 CR250R
05 – 07 Suzuki RMZ450 RMZ 450
04 – 07 Suzuki RM250 RM 250
01 – 07 Suzuki RM125 RM 125

Designed for Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki. The Service manual recommends fork oil and seals should be replaced each year.  Fork valves and shims are changed to set the suspension to match your weight, riding style and the type of riding you prefer.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to pay a shop $100 or more every 15 hours to keep your fork oil fresh and more than $200 for suspension modifications.  The cost of oil, seals, shims and valves are relatively inexpensive.  Most of the cost is shop labor.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do it yourself with confidence just like the pro’s do?  We’ll show you how to maintain your fork for a fraction of one service charge.

This DVD is designed for those who prefer watching a demonstration rather than reading a manual or fumbling your way through the process.  After watching our detailed step-by-step video, you should be able to service your fork in approximately 2.5 hours if you possess moderate mechanical skills.  

We’ll show you how to do this in your garage with minimal special tools.  The mechanic speaks slowly so you can watch the video and take notes if you like.  Unlike most maintenance videos that focus on the actor, this video is shot at close range so you can see the details.  You can see each part through disassembly and reassembly.  No steps are skipped.

See a sample video!

What you’ll get:
 A detailed video performed by a certified motorcycle mechanic on a 2003 Honda CRF450R.  
NOTE: The forks on both Honda and Suzuki are the same except diameters are different.  Removing forks from the Suzuki may vary slightly from the Honda but the concepts are the same.
