I assume your talking about the front springs. I never did have allot of luck locating a allen wrench. So, I used a a 1/2 inch bolt. Welded a nut to the threads. Put, the bolt head in the cap and twisted. Worked fine. Just a thought. Good luck.

Thanks for the size on the allen wrench I just put in the new springs. They felt great but I have not taken it out for a ride I will do that tomorrow and report back. 😢

Night and day difference. No more blowing through the suspension on jumps, washboard, and tight corners. 15wt oil in the front, rear rebound set to max (there is still not enough with the stock oil/valving but I haven't change the oil yet), and rear compression where it feels best for your riding style. Play with it, you'll see what I mean.
