When I went looking for information on how to defork my LX90 I found quite a lot, but not the step-by-step instructions I was hoping for. So, I decided to document what I did in case it may help someone else.
What follows are the steps I took to remove my 2006 Meade 8” LX90 from its fork mount. Other LX90s may be different, so please take that into account before you set out to modify your own LX90.
It's probably a good idea for you to read through the instructions before beginning. The project isn't really all that hard, but it's good to know what you're getting into. Here's what you'll need:
- Full set of SAE Allen wrenches (hex key)
- Phillips head screwdriver
- Penetrating oil (Liquid Wrench)
