Yes and no............

You do have to remove the forks from the bike. You do not have to COMPLETELY dissasemble them. REmoving the cap as you did to change the springs, and removing the spring will get you to a point you can change the oil, you will then have to pump the fork to get all oil out of the cartridge.

IT can be done this way but I DO NOT recommend it, used oil leaves a bit of a sludge at the bottom of your forks, and I recomend dissasembly to completely clean and inspect all fork components.

Thanks MotoJoe

Very Very ..... :bowdown:

to refill the cartdridge how do I bleed the air trappend inside, I gues Have to pump it slowly and wait until bubbles don´t come up anymore.

thinking in removing the compression adjuster to bleed oil first ????

Yeah once you fill the fork with the desired amount of oil, you pump the fork legs until you dont hear the gurgling sucking sound and see bubbles from the inside.

If you are measuring the fork height, you need to do this FIRST before taking a reading, but if you are using a specified # of CC's then it has to be done before closing the fork back up.
