2003 K1200LT Front Shock

My front shock is leaking which makes me think that's why my ride is so hard that causes my mirror to fall off on real bumpy roads. The dealer wants over 400.00 to replace it. Has anyone ever done in their garage instead of taking it in?

It can be done in the garage. There should be some instructions in the Hall of Wisdom to guide you.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
