On my introduction thread we discussed the issues with my new (to me) 03 V92CC.
The verdict is that the fork seals will need to be changed, same goes for the steering bearings. The steering stem bolt is destroyed and I bought one NOS on eBay for 49$ shipped. Pure luck, I have seen them for as high as 179$ (FOR A BOLT!).
I also needed a good set of extractors, so I picked this one up on Amazon:Neiko 04204A Hex Head Multi-Spline Screw and Bolt Extractor Set
. Looks like I bought the last one so if anyone wants a suggestion for bolt extractors, here is another one that looks pretty good too: IRWIN HANSON Hex Head Multi-Spline Screw Extractor Set, 25 Piece
Now I need to get a set of bearings and a set of fork seals. I saw these on Amazon. Can someone help me figure out if this works for my bike?

While I am there I wanted to check the front wheel bearings. Not sure those need replacing as much as the steering bearings, or just repacking, or if I should just leave them alone. Thoughts?
Brake pads are thin all around so I am probably doing that as well.
Changing the oil should be a straight process. I just need to find the filter. For Florida weather, any suggestions on the oil to use or should I go with factory specs? She has about 45000 miles on the odo.
I'm changing the front tire too. The one in there now is a rear tire, mounted without reversing the direction, and its is very worn out and dry. Any customization worth doing here? I usually stick to stock on front tires.
Any other things you guys think I should look at while I'm there? I'll have the entire front end pulled apart so I'm sure there are other things I should check on this old gal.
