My inner cartridge leaks. How do I split the damper?

Recommended Posts

These are Showa forks off my CRF250. Upon changing the oil I found one inner cartridge to be empty. So I tried filling it to see what happened. Upon compressing the damper, the oil runs out at the lower seal where teh damper meets the cartridge. It looks like a need a special hex to split these apart. Can someone tell me what I need to do this job? I'm in a financial bind and I just want to ride this thing to relieve some stress. :thumbsup:

You will need a 17mm hex and rod seal. Once the rod is out(teflon tape the threads before removal) you should carefully drill the peen marks (4) before removing the seal holder.

you can get the seals from eg RT or FC

i've used MX Tech before. I checked their website. But I need to know the dimensions. I need to find a exploded view with a part number. Then again, I figured I'd call them shortly. Thanks!
