    Aw geez I should have thought of that. Remove the thinkamabob and pour the whatchmacallit into the thingies.

    Is that better? :s

    You have the air lines?
    You don't need to remove anything. Get a mity vac and read that post I linked you to.

    You remove the schrader valve in the air fill and use the mity vac on that and draw the fork oil into the drain screw hole with a fitting you make or fashion to attach a hose to and siphon in the oil into the leg. Very simple.

    This is a mity vac available in most automotive stores.

    True story - I was at the reunion with some of my cousin's shooting Skeet and she walks up (friend of a female cousin) and asks if she could shoot, I offered her my shotgun to use and she replied that she had her own in her truck!! We married a year latter and have been together 26 years.
