I seem to remember spending about ten minuteson the operation: removing the front wheel and mudguard then, having removed the top nuts, sliding the stanchions out the yokes, upending them and pumping in to a collection vessel.

many thanks for that ...i presume you just put the desired amount of oil in each leg at the open end(nut removed) and just tighten things back up is it

Best to pull them apart and flush them out as there is always oily gunge lying at the bottom of the legs if putting fresh oil in

Can be flushed by pumping fluid whilst in one piece, it may need more than one go. I used to use paraffin and it did not seem to affect seals.
