1973 and later forks do not have removable bushings. If slider is worn or excessive looseness on fork tube, slider must be replaced.

To remove upper fork slider bushings, insert the fork slider bushing puller and cap (1, Figure 2-42) into the fork slider a sufficient distance to allow the claws to extend below lower end of the upper fork slider bushing. Place puller cap into oil sealcounterbore. Apply oil to screw threads and steel thrust washer and turn nut down against puller cap to remove all slack from puller assembly. Using a wrench, continue to turn nut against puller cap until bushing is removed (see Figure 2-43).

To remove lower fork slider bushing, follow same procedure used in removing upper fork bushing.
