Fork cartridge removal
08/26/17 9:58 AM

Other than a spring compressor, do I need a cartridge holding tool? How hard is it to get the bolt out of the bottom?

Only way to go is an air tool at the lower fork leg hex bolt. It will come apart in 3 pieces. Unless you change out the spring, most work can be done like changing a fork seal, replacing the oil, cleaning/inspection of parts.

I'm replacing my cartridges with AK-20's, according to Traxxion I'll need their cartridge holding tool but it will take a week to get and I'd like to install sooner than that. Their claim is that KYB used more locktite that Showa and that's what makes it harder to get out.

How do you get the fork cap off? I've got my spring compressor pulling down on the plastic collar but it won't expose the damper rod nut.


the damper rod nut.
