Subject: ETX-125PE: How do you remove the OTA from the forks? Sent: Sunday, May 14, 2006 09:54:17 From: Allen Jensen (firstname.lastname@example.org) Tom, here are the photo's. In lnt_remove1, I am pointing at the screw that is not obvious that you remove and you can see where the screw on the right was already removed. lnt_remove2 shows the LNT module detached from the OTA and you can clearly see the plastic connector you would have to disconnect if you wanted to leave the LNT on the OTA.Mike here: To remove the OTA from the fork arms you must remove the four bolts (two on each side) that attach the tube adapters. You can see some photos of this operation near the bottom of this page: http://www.weasner.com/etx/90ec_comments.html
Hope this helps, I am also going to CC Mike Weasner on this in case he would like to add the photos to his site.
