    "Guess what is needed, among other things..."

    I'll take a guess: fork seals? Looks like you wrote "bad leaker" on one of them. Just a guess based on the syran wrap. (No, I have no idea how to spell that).

      Front and rear tires, front brake pads, fork seals and an open highway.

      I’m guessing a mechanic to put all that chit back together, some money to buy that 12 pack so you can sit back and watch.

      Why'd ya remove the rear fender? Does it make removing the rear wheel easier?

      A chain saw maybe...looks like you have a fair assortment of other tools. 

      Maybe a garden hose to connect to your mower deck quick coupler to clean grass clippings out.

      Oh, oh, I got it...a GenMar no mar tire changing bar!    I have just the bar and now I actually look forward to changing tires cause it is so easy.  I am only referring to the dismount and mounting of tires and not removal of rear wheel from bike as I dread that part.   Front wheel removal is very easy with oem fender.

      Both tires, busted right fork seal(puking all over the pipes and motor) and brake pads. Was only going to save about $200 by doing it myself but the dealer could not get the front Avon in until June 2nd. So I ordered tires from American Moto Tire, got both within 5 days. Getting the shop the do both forks since both were slightly leaking until the right really puked out.

      Don't know about you guys but all the shops here in Tulsa are running 3-5 weeks behind. By pulling everything off myself and taking in I should have them back by the weekend.

      I did remove the rear fender to pull the tire, I had read on here that a lot of guys do that and said it was much easier to get to. First time I had done it and it was really very painless. ;D
