Fork Stanchion Removal Tool
« on: Nov 12, 2020, 04:53:17 pm »
Hi Guys

As many of us know, removing the fork stanchions from the fork legs can be a pain, and every bike seems to have a different way to remove them.

Some have a tool you can ram down the stanchion to hold the inner part while you unscrew the bolt on the bottom of the fork leg. Sometimes you can get away with a broom handle to do the same job.

However, I have two different tools for bikes, but none work on the Raider.

My question is....... Is there a correct  tool that Yamaha sell to do the job and if so, can anyone point me in the right direction to what it is?

    I've tried this tool and I find it so-so, but you might have more luck than I did. Personally I think I'll have to come up with something better.
    I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.
