I am having a problem with the forks. I've replaced many a fork seals on the ST, and it was easy. But I have to remove the stanchion and have so far been unable to. Used and air wrench but the damper is still spinning. Reassembled the forks, but that didn't help. I still do not have the manual, and stuff online is not specific to this bike. Anybody familiar with it? Or have any advice ?
So, have you got the fork caps installed and tightened down before you use the air wrench to remove the dampner bolt? Hopefully, because the is the easy way to do it. And you may have to use big twist, like a 1/2 air wrench, with the caps screwed all the way down for resistance.
