spanner wrench thickness (what's the max)

I picked up what I thought was the thinnest wrench that I could find, but it turns out that it's the same thickness as my craftsman, just longer so it looks thinner. frown.gif I think I'm just going to take the grinder to this one. I haven't had the forks apart yet, but do any of you have a guess for the thickest a wrench could be to be useful when changing the fork oil? This one is 8mm thick and I want to grind it before I take the forks apart.


I've never had to grind a wrench. Pulling the spring down the thickness of any wrench will let if fit just fine. Some of the older Showa forks had to have a thin (4mm?) wrench to loosen the locknut but you won't need that for your KYB's.

Ahh, excellent, thanks! From the picture in the manual and from what I've been reading I thought that you had to have a thin wrench. Now I can get my $10.99 back from home depo. smile.gif
