Nice bushing installer tool. I could've used one like that when I did my '69 Triumph Bonneville last year.

So many awesome ideas and tips in here! Such an amazing resource. THANKS to everyone who has contributed!

I had a brief look through the pages and did a search but I couldn't find anything about a homemade "Fork Spring Retainer & Pin Wrench" OEM 94694-52.

Has anyone had any luck getting their fork spring retainers out with out this tool?

I'm rebuilding my front forks and this little step has got me stumped.

Any ideas?

Default Fly Cut Thor,a new tool design,extremely cost effective and time saving

Just click on each small pictures to get to my Photobucket video link


You are among the very first to see those videos and images,completely non-bike related as the title mention,this is mostly for those who work in or around a machine shop or interested in metal removal at it's best, to all hope you will enjoy.

I know this is not around bike this time,those who read my technical threads before,this one is completely different for a change
