Fork tools
« on: December 06, 2018, 09:35:41 AM »
I need to replace the fork seals on my 16 XRx. Do I need any special tools to get the forks apart?

Thanks

Not all strictly necessary but worth having. Just the fork spring compressor kit really.  I made my own oil level tool.

I would advise buying a "flat" mouthed socket for the fork caps, an ordinary one with the usual champered mouth can easily slip and chew up the soft cap hex..DAMHIK  :003: :003:

Electrical tape / selotape does a fine job against that.
