Fork spring stuck

Recommended Posts

Well I've searched the subject and come to realize that the previous owner of my honda 450 mixed up the fork guard and disk guard bolts trapping the spring in the fork tube.

Thing is, I can't seem to get the fork lug off to fix it. Removed the set screw, torched the tube/lug for 10-15 minutes (residual oil was boiling in the tube). Still won't budge even with a rubber strap wrench.

Any help?

You've gotta carefully drill the peens too. But your main problem is the longer bolt has trashed the fork tube. I dont know that you'll ever be able to get it apart and still have salvagable parts.
