    I have started my winter teardowns and repairs for spring 2007.

    I have my fast trac in right now and have the deck off.
    I taken the wheels off and replacing them and repainting the deck from bangs & bumps through the last year. Decking looking great now.

    My question is should i do anything to my spindles to help prevent any problems down the road? Or just clean around them really good and leave them be?

    My next question is the front forks on the fas track dont have zerts for greese. Should I taken them apart and repack them?

    Any other suggestions on PM's I would Also like to know as well.

    The bearings in the spindle and the frame where the fork goes through are both the same, they are sealed, you can not repack them.
    I would check them to make sure they are spinning freely and if they are you are fine.
    Of course check the spindles for cracks and make sure there is no fishing line or something wound up in them and you will be fine.
