Ideas for tool improvising?
« on: October 27, 2013, 11:47:48 AM »
Does anyone have a method for unscrewing the fork leg valve port ( I want to fit a new spring) without buying the rather expensive service tool -( 25 in the UK)?

Put a hex wrench in it or pull your footpegs and use the hex rod they are bolted to.  ERC

Sorry, ERC - I meant the threaded spring retainer on the other end of the fork tube ( inside the slider). It has 4 little square indents that really needs a correct tool for unscrewing it. I might try to make something up.
