HELP!! Suspension revalve and we're stuck!

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to unthread the valving stack for the lower fork and it just keeps spinning but is not coming out. I have the new Race Tech gold valves to go in but like I said when I turn the valve stack it just spins the whole assembly. After looking down the stanchion I can see a "collar" that has two notches opposite of each other. Is there a special tool I need or is the O-ring in the valve stack just causing friction or gummed up? Has anyone had this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated...we're dead in the water and have a race next weekend. Thanks! Lee :cry:

Yes, you need a tool to hold that inside piece you saw with the 2 notches in it. I made a tool out of a piece of 18" long black pipe, 1" ID I believe. Just cut one end to have 2 castlations in it to fit those in the fork and drill a hole in the other end to put a screwdriver thru to hold it from spinning. If I was at home I could send you a picture.
