Removal of the old parts:

1. Disconnect the steering damper from the crossrod arm and secure it with the zip ties.
2. Disconnect the drag link and pit arm.
3. Remove the 34mm nut and lock washer.
4. Remove the drop arm.
5. Remove the dust seal.
6. Remove the circlip.
7. VERY CAREFUL... Drill two holes to the seal backup.
8. Screw-in the two screws and remove the seal backup with the pit arm removal tool.
9. Using the hooks and picks remove the washer backup. (shitty cardboard)
10. Using the hooks and picks remove the seal. (rubber seal)
11. Clean up everything and get the new parts ready...
