Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
You should be able to do this job provided you have a way to get the bike off the ground. Lifting the bike off the ground enables the forks to extend all the way. This is necessary because the stock spring will be longer and stiffer requiring a bit of compression when reassembling the fork. You may need a tool or a helper to compress the spring while you thread the fork tube cap back into the top tube. There is a special tool that is made to assist with this. Whether or not you'll need this tool, I'm afraid I can't answer that with guaranteed accuracy. I know that I've serviced many front fork assemblies without any special tools. This information applies to the standard Hydro-Shock front end only, not the Springer front end.
