  • Fork tool - pics added

    I see some are considering doing their own fork service. Here is a crude fork tool I made to hold fork in a vice and install the cap.



    not very pretty, but serviceable. Just 4- 1/4" all thread and a scrap of 1/4" x 2" bar.
    My fork top will be different. It's from a 4" longer V Max, for my raked Trike.
    pics didn't show but are in the following post

          I break torque on the caps before I take them off, and torque them after the lower clamp bolts are torqued.


          Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

            I do the same when changing fork oil.

          This tool helps get the cap on straight while under spring pressure. The fine thread is easily ruined if its not started straight. I have a custom triple tree. Top is solid, Caps are inserted inside a pocket.
