I installed the progressive springs in my Sixty without removing the fork. I got a large syringe and tubing from Amazon. You need to cycle the wheel up and down several times to get the last of the oil out.

Hi there, "springs" alone is a definite YES, "oil" a MAYBE. :oops::unsure:;). If you use either a manual or electric oil/fluid pump and stick the hose down the tube, you may get 80% or so of the old oil out, not more. Just be aware of that. When I did my oil- and spring change, I just took them off - no big deal if you can support the bike with the front wheel off the ground. Good luck!

Thanks for your reply! I may just take them off , a lot more work but it looks like it would be a better job by removing them!
