Fork Oil Change

Hey all, I wanted to get some info on a fork oil change Ill be doing myself. I read in a few old posts there is an easy way to do it by breaking the top nut, pulling the fork and let it hang upside down to drain. Has anyone done this? What about compressing the fork once its drained? Any insight would be great or point me to a thread that explains it. Thanks!

You do have service manual? Having the special tool helps but it can be done without. I wouldn't recommend the upside method because then you can not set the level very good. Here is an old write up I made changing ZX12 fork oils and the ZX14 is basically the same. http://www.vehkacenter.com/toni/www/huolto/forkoil.html
