I just bought a 1995 XR 600 a couple of weeks ago and decided to kinda go through everthing and check it out before I rode it. I discovered it had leaking fork seals and bad fork boots. A coworker offered to do the seals for me so I pulled the legs out and sent them home with him. When disassembling them he took the nut loose at the bottom of the legs and the dampener rod came unthreaded from the valve stack. Now on reassembly he can't get the rod to thread back into the valve. Is it suppose to come loose were it did and if so how do you restart the threads? He has done several dozen different fork jobs (including other years and models of XR's) and says he has never seen one do this. Does someone have some advise or help please. He spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to get one of the restarted.
