Clean up the bottom race on the fork so it's smooth. Slide the fork in and turn it to check the smoothness of the bottom set of bearings first,...
I'm pretty sure Typhoons all were S-7 with 1 3/4" tires.
That will be so much fun, you'll stay out all day. I know I would pack a lunch if I was going for a ride. It'll need a second battery for extended...
