rattle gun to remove valve damper

Recommended Posts

hey guys, going to be doing a race tech gold valve kit on the 01 cr 500 wet bath single chamber forks.

the correct tool to remove the fork damper is not available to me. so i was going to use the rattle gun to remove them.

does anyboby know if this is a safe method to use a rattle gun to remove/install the damper units?

ive done it before and it seemed to work ok. was just wondering if there were anything to worry about this way.

i think you are talking about the cartridge holder?

A tool which helps the cartridge not to spin when unscrewing the compression holder

so i was going to use the rattle gun to remove them.

insert the spring again, press on it and remove the compression holder with an air gun

that usually works

thanks. your interpretations of what i ment were correct.

so it is common practice to do it with the air gun then?
