Im trying to do the fork seals but I can't get the allen head bolt out of the bottom of the forks. Is there some ancient japanese secret to doing this? It will turn but just goes round and round. The book says if you have trouble, reassemble the the spring and stuff but i get the same result, It just spins. Whats the majic trick to this?

Use an impact. Just did four sets.
^ ^ ^

Only way it's going to work unless you have some crazy priced tool from Suzuki!

i guess I could cut off an 8mm allen and use a socket that it fits in to use it on an impact.

the socket type allens i have are to short to reach in.

Thx

I had no luck with the impact. fortunately you dont have to pull that bolt out to do the seals, but what am i missing that I should be replacing that can only be done by pulling that bolt?

Cant tighten the thing up now either, just spinning round and round grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr what a pain in the ass.
