Front fork axel casting removal (sorry double)

Double posted! Should be in this Forum

Wanting to remove the lower axel block from the tubes. I know they are threaded on and have read many post about the KYB being a pain but the Showa tubes being much easier. With that said, do you just sep, the tubes like you were to do for seals, heat up the casting and hopfully with some sweat unscrew off? Wanting to powder coat the castings

You will have much more luck in the suspension forum. You might have to pry the halves apart slightly at first I cant remember. Congratulations, you are the .001 % of owners who have done this.
