    Is it possible to change the yoke wiyhout having to crush a new sleeve.Could'nt you just set it back to the same preload,maybe a slight bit tighter?If a new sleeve is a must where could I find one besides the dealer?

    ive switched yokes w/o changing the crush sleeve, and torqued it back to the same specs and never had any problems. weither or not ur suposed to...im not sure, it was necessary to let a friend borrow it since he destroyed his yoke on the trail and needed it to get home.

    The repair procedure in the factory service manual says you can re-use the crush sleeve, so I don't think it'll be an issue.
    Just make sure you measure the pre-load torque before you tear it down so you have a reference for re-installation.
