Special Tools for Fork Maintenance and Steering Head Bearings

Recommended Posts

For an '01E...

The service manual calls for several "special tools" for the Fork Maintenance and Steering Head bearing maintenance. I've never had forks apart before. Which (if any) of the tools are really necessary? Can normal wrenches substitute for any of them?

Steering head bearings.. special :cry: :cry: not to me,, but maybe not in the average garage.. if your just re greasing the bearings you really do not need any "special" tools.. If your replacing them,, you need to be able to drive out the races, install the new ones, press off the old lower bearing, and pres on the new one.

Forks,, same kind of answer.. just changing fluid,, no special tools needed.. complete go through,, you'll need seal driver at least.
