If you go to a fork exploded parts view, http://www.servicehonda.com/parts/lookup#/Honda/XR600R_A_%2892%29_MOTORCYCLE%2c_JPN%2c_VIN%23_JH2PE040-NM700004/FRONT_FORK_91-92/XR600R-92-JPN-A/2Y14MK2FMK24F0802AA item 14 threads into what I would have called the damper rod. The bottom bolt, which also has the compression adjuster built in, threads into 14 to hold the forks together. When I took my fork apart, item 14, 51431-KS7-701 PIECE (LOWER), unthreaded from the tube item 13 51430-MN1-681 CYLINDER instead of the bottom bolt item 18 51441-KS7-003 BOLT, CENTER coming out. It's loose now but I haven't got a good idea how to hold the "PIECE (LOWER)" to get it the rest of the way out. Anybody ever have this happen? How'd you get it off. I'm tempted to take the second, already rebuilt fork apart to see better whats on the side of that PIECE (LOWER) that I might be able to hold. Somehow. TIA, Mike S.
