Currently in the process of removing the innertube from the forks can someone suggest where to get the so called special tools that the manual suggest or what have you used to remove the inner tube?

Thanks

Never even looked at the manual on that one.

You need a socket set and an alen key set.

No big deal:dontknow:

Fork disassembly tools

You'll need something to hold the spring compressed, and a tool to loosen the cap from the assembly. These guys can tell you what you need:

You could make your own if you have a shop available.
A way to fill it to the proper depth after would be nice too, but you can improvise.
Seal drivers are nice too.
You can do this without $500 in tools, of course the right tools always make it easier.
I would check locally for a good machine shop or motorcycle mechanic and see what the cost to do it right would be, and go from there.

You mean the alen bolt from the very bottom?

If so, break it loose before you open anything up and it should work out well once you are inside
