fork tube cap install tool

3 posts in this topic

needed 4 hands to install the fork tube caps after i put a steel slug in in place of the preload spring. i wore a hole in my palm trying to do this and wasted 4 hours of my life. took a 1" socket that i bought years ago for 1 project that i never needed again. so i put it on the vice at work and broke out the cut off wheel. the top of my caps have a tower for the air valves so the notch will grab around that and i can spin it around with a screw gun. it doesnt take alot of torque to get the caps started but it takes alot of downward force to get it there. i haven't tried this yet but i hope it works.post-13668-1298479047_thumb.jpg

it didn't work as well as i wanted it to. i was able to get the cap started by hand and torque it down with this. i didn't have an extension the right size so i put it on my ratchet and tightened it down. even though it didn't work the way i wanted it to the important thing is it worked. i just gotta put oil back in my forks which i'm going to inject with an infant medicine syringe into the port of the air. i don't want to take those caps off to replenish the oil i leaked.
